Tank mate suggestions please!

Hello,

I have a 55g tank with 6 white skirt tetras and 8 guppies and some nerite snails. I would like to add a 3rd fish species to the tank. The issue is, I don’t want something aggressive that will eat or bully my current fish, BUT, one or a few of my white skirts are also a bit nippy, so I’d be afraid to add something with too long of fins. What are my options? I am still fairly new to the hobby as well, so nothing too hard either. I would like something a bit larger that I could fit a few in my tank if possible.

Thanks!

What about a couple of female mollies. They get about 4" and come in all sorts of colours. They are also usually peaceful, of course with all fish you may end up with a bully.

Add more white skirts....like 10 total. Sometimes it curbs fin nipping.

Personally, I like dwarf cichlids with schooling fish in medium sized tanks.

I dont think I want to add more white skirts as I dont really like them as is, mostly because of the nipping makes me afraid to add anything I really want in there. I would hate to add more and make it even worse.
