Will 2 guppies fight?

I actually got 2 female guppies already.

Niow i have a male hi-fin platy with 2 guppies, still acclimating them, but will 2 female guppy (one pregnant one not) fight and will the male platy attack them?

The tank is 1/4 planted with a hiding place for the female guppy and still trying to grow 2 young java fern and gravel=substrate

And how will i get rid of the guppy eggs if the guppy was to lay them?

Thank you

Fighting Guppies

Hello sholi...

Your fish are "Livebearers", so there won't be any eggs. The fry (young) of these two fishes are born alive. So, you'll have a lot of little guppies swimming around. It's very likely the females are pregnant already, but not from the Platy. They were probably pregnant when you got them.

Livebearers are generally peaceful fish, so you shouldn't have any problems.

"Fear not, my young apprentice. Just change the tank water."
