Thanks maestromad, The move was successful and all fish seem to be OK, we will purchase a testing kit today

Now back to my original question of how I stop my molly fish being bullied by 4 guppies, its mainly 1 bully and the others follow suit. Do I remove guppies and risk them starting on the other one or do I remove my 2 mollies? Or do I buy more mollies for 'safety in numbers'?

Please help, we now have a lovely big tank but it hasnt helped the problem at all....

Hmm that is a problem - I personally ony keep guppies. As mentioned previously lots of hiding places and plants may help

You need enough decorations to break the line of sight. If you arent using real plants, and dont plan to, just get some ornaments or silk plants. There will still be bullying whenever the fish see eachother, but there are places to hide.
