Title says it all, introduced a gourmai to a group of 4 platys, 2 male platys, 2 female platys. In the tank also is 6 bloodfin tetra, and 5 cory's. 100L tank

One of the female blue micky mouse platy's follows my powder blue DG and and nips at him... is this standard? My DG seems a little annoyed.

Well hopefully she'll get bored with harassing him, and will also figure out that hs tendrils or whatever they're called are not food lol...it sometimes can be standard, but usually that behavior won't last all that long. But if she continues to do that non-stop, then there may be a problem.

Cool thanks, I went and got a bunch of plants and made him some more hiding spots in the mean time

Oh yes, good call there! More refuge may accelerate his discouragement from her harassment. Wise call wise call...
