So over the course of a few days I have gone from 4 fish (2 guppy 2 molly) down to just 2 Mollies. My wife, daughter, and I went away for a couple of days and had my sister in law look after my tank.
When she got there on our first night away everything was fine and dandy. Then when she went back on our third night she found our blue guppy at thr surface dead and with a side fin missing. I got her to take thr body out and do am ammonia test and it found less than .5ppm (the tank isess than 2 weeks old).
When we got home I found the rainbow molly had damage to his tail. I removed the rainbow molly and returned him to my LFS
where they are going to quarantine him and put him back with the other rainbows.
The guy at the LFS
said that Mollies can be very territorial and shouldn't have been put with guppies. Everything I read online says they can. Did I just end up picking the two most jerk bully Mollies in the store? I would get another species, but my daughter LOVES these Mollies (it is her tank after all lol). She is two years old and loves to tell people she has 4 fish.
So after my long rant my main question is, what other fish can i put in this tank that isn't going to be stressful to any of the inhabitants and my daughter can have her 4 fish.
Tank details: 10 gallon, HOB
filter, bubbler dialed down, 2 red crypt plants, 1 pumpkin patch molly, and one black molly.
