I currently have 3 tanks.
An empty 10gal I had used for breeding platys (forced to get rid of the fry), a community 10gal with 6 mickey mouse platys (2 male 4 females) and 5 non-fancy guppy females, and a 1.5 gallon I used for Portal Prime. My community tank has 2 spinach plants and 1 tomato plant growing on the water surface. (Aquaponics thing I started and are still working on)
Here's the thing: My parents forced me to stick Portal Prime in the community tank (they don't understand a THING about fish) and refuse to let me start cycling the 10gal. I'm highly irritated about this and are currently trying to move out. I pay the dang water bill, I should be able to keep whatever I want >:C
One of my smaller female platys (she is the youngest and I named her chii-chii) has already been Portal Prime's target, and the others are starting to have fin bits missing. Portal prime does NOT do good with tank mates (he tore apart my male guppy, who had been apart of my school). The guppies are currently doing the smart thing and staying away from him, but my platys just seem to like him v.v
Chii-chii already has a scale missing above her eye and just below her dorsal, and another female has a chunk of her tail missing.
I want to scream. I tried sneaking the platys into the 10 gal to treat them for the scale loss but my dad dumped them back into the community tank and nearly killed everything in it with the water imbalance!!!!
What can I do to try and keep Portal prime from attacking the platys? The tank is practically hard to see through with so many fake plants and caves....argh I'm so mad right now.
