:( It died last night. It never swam around much, I worried about it a lot. I wonder if I overfed it or if it was just sickly because its momma was sickly. Poor thing. And two of my cory cats died for no reason, just literally tipped over and were dead within minutes after I scooped them out. They were the corys I've had for three weeks now, too. The newest ones are okay in their isolation tank. Community tanks are hard. >.<

Well that just sucks X(
Were the cories with the guppies too? I'm guessing baby got something from mommy, fry are pretty zippy when healthy.. I don't think you can feed them too much. Next time don't get guppies, you have bad luck with guppies.. Or get them from somewhere else.. Did you get this batch and the wormy batch from the same place?

Yeah, I'm thinking guppies don't like me or my water or something. I got these guppies from a different pet store, one that takes really good care of their fish. So I'm thinking it's me, not the pet store.

The momma guppy was briefly in the tank with the cories when she was in a breeder for a half hour. I'm thinking while Crichton is in QT for his tail (or lack thereof) I'll put Wanda in his spot in the divided tank. I really don't want anything to happen to her.

Yeah, do that.. Sometimes guppies get so inbred that they're sick even when they look ok when you buy them.. I don't think it's your fault, might be the water but stuff like this happens. Livebearer pregnancies can be really difficult. :(

I have two guppies left. I've heard they should be in bigger groups but the two don't seem to be bothering each other. I'm heading to the pet store tomorrow when they get in their new shipment 'cause I want to try a few more panda cories. Should I get one more guppy or just let these two be and hope for the best?

i would stick with three just to be safe. My male tends to be a bully unless there are a lot of guppies around. He even tore a few fins when it was the original three.

I'll pick up another female then when I'm at the pet store. So far the one girl seems to be okay but I don't want to take any chances. Thanks, vette91.
