    Livebearers are social, but not schooling. Some fish, like cories, really need a group or they will not thrive. Others like most cichlids are territorial and do fine alone. Livebearers are somewhere...

    Welcome to the community.

    Make sure you research the size of any species you find interesting. Your current suggestions
    all need (sometimes significantly) larger tanks than the one you have.

    That fish does not look to be gravid. the threads are likely camallanus worms or relatives thereof. If I remember correctly the only medication that kills camallanus is levamisole.

    Your fish are very skinny from whatever happened to them during their stay at the pet store, it will take a while before they even approach spawning condition. If you haven't...

    If I recall correctly they will reach a maximum length of around a foot. Not only that, but they are an active and schooling species.

    What you could do is dose up to half, observe for a few minutes to see whether any ill effects are showing, and if the fish seems fine, then dose up to full strength.
