The Guppies 4!

As requested. They've stopped being crazy explorers and now hang out in a pack midway up the tank at the front. So far there's no nipping going on. I know it's possible since I have no girls. I think they're siblings. They were in the tank together with platys and they were the only 4 guppies, so they're well known to each other already and they school really nicely. They're fiercely adorable. I think I'll name them after the 4 Musketeers. Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and d'Artagnan! I love that old movie. :D

I was going to go with Dwarf Gourami but I read about possible aggression despite the fact that they're supposed to be more mellow. The corys are so happy now, I don't want to mess that up. I never used to see them and now they're all over the place. I didn't realize how badly Tango was intimidating them.

So... pics and a video of the guppies AND my huge cory girls and lil boys:

:) They're really pretty~ So it IS possible to keep male guppies together without females.

They are so pretty! I wish I could get some. I really like the ones that are all black.

Do you think your going to add any more or just stick with those 4 and the corys?

According to the aquarium stocking calc I'm at 102%. If I did add more, I'd wait maybe a month or two? And then only one or two more. I went from 74% stocked to 102% and I wanna give the tank time to catch up.

I think they assume you have females, which are bigger. I only have lil males. I might get away with 2 more.

They are cute! I love the one with the patterning.

I used to have Dwarf Gouramis a loong time ago, before I really knew what I was doing. They were genrally okay, though there was one that sometimes bullied the other two. They are pretty great fish though.
