One of my tanks is a 9 gallon fully recycled fresh water. 5 teaspoon of salt was added. I have 2 balloon mollies (silver white and 1 with black polka dots), 2 red platies, 1 fancy tail guppy, 1 red tail guppy, 1 pleco. I had a female guppy for more than a month. 3-4 days back I noticed a black gravid spot near the analfin. I thought she was preggy. 2 days back I introduced the 2 red platies. I was shocked to see that the female guppy immediately attacked the platies. The chasing went on for 5mins and just as I thought of taking the platies out, I saw the female guppy calming down...mostly 'coz the male guppies settled back with the female. Next day morning, I found my female guppy dead...with her mouth open!! What did I do wrong?! I feel terrible. Also, is there a male/female ratio that should be adhered to while keeping guppies? Can fancy tail male guppy mate with normal female guppy?
