My new guppies

I got 3 1.5 cobra guppies, 2 male and 1 female. They work well with each other and the pleco and tetra. What do you think?

I learned that.... I already have 1 fry and i would love to have more.....I'm aware though, i will be getting more soon. Maybe a lyre-tail but most likely more 1.5 cobras.

You may also have to rehome the pleco soon. 10g is not enough for any pleco....

Sorry to say but if he's a common, he needs around 100+g!!. Even Bristlenoses need at least a 30g. A good alternative would be some Netrite snails or Otos.....
