    Hi :) Personally, I think you're fully stocked with the 3 platys. They're pretty high on the bioload. What about adding some shrimp and snails?

    would I be okay adding 2-3 male guppies?

    I wouldn't. I think in terms of fish, you're fully stocked as is.

    Hello mga...

    If the Platys are all male, then such a small tank might work long term. If you have both sexes in there, you should really make plans for a larger tank. Livebearing fish are fast breeders in good water conditions and will eventually outgrow your 10 G.

    Hopefully, you're a good water changer. Such a small tank will require 50 percent water changes every 3 to 4 days if you want the fish to be healthy.

    Good luck.
