    I have had 4 Zebra Danios in my tropical fishtank for 3 weeks now and was looking to add a couple more fish, any ideas welcome. was looking at maybe a couple of mollys but just not sure.

    I am not having any problem with Algae at the moment so i take it i do not need an algae eater until i do.

    The danio's seem pretty peaceful and a couple chase each other around sometimes but not very often.

    Thanks for any advice

    Before you add fish, you should make sure your tank has gone through the nitrogen cycle.

    welcome to FL. :)

    if you cycled before adding the danios, then 2-3 mollies should work fine in your tank. Mollies are prolific breeders, so 1 male and 2 females would be good. The adults should eat the fry, so you shouldn't have a population explosion.

    A bit later, you could consider adding a small school of otos to the bottom, or even some shrimp or pgymy cories.
