I have also ordered an aquaclear 50 filter to replace the filter that came with the tank. Also, on a positive note, I separated the glofish tetra (I think they are actually white skirt tetra?) from the tank and the guppy came out of hiding and is swimming around tank.
    There's your answer. Return all the tetras (tell the fish lady they are nipping the guppy). I know they are for your granddaughter, but I think she would really enjoy the tank with the danios and guppies as Tiari has suggested.

    24 inch should be able to house 8 danios (glofish, that's the gen-mod version of the zebra, right?) and a few (3-4) guppies without any issues at all. Even a pair of platies should be possible. Leave it at that and you're stocked low enough that the occasional beginner's mistake won't wipe out the tank.

    Since it seems you are out for the entertainment of the grand-daughter (who could blame you!), I do think a mix of the glow-lite danios and guppies would give plenty of enjoyment. Not too many, you don't want to crowd, and the male guppies when in pairs (at least four) will do a "ring around the rosie" dance/swim she's sure to really love. Once the tank is settled in, you could consider a mystery snail, which will also amuse her (and you!)
    2 10 gallon tanks, 1 20 gallon tank, 1 Fluval Edge, 1 29 gallon tank, and one backyard pond.

    Thanks for all your help. I am going with the guppies and danios. Should I get 3 male guppies at one time so there will be 2 pairs of 2 or should I get 1 male guppy this week so he bonds with the current guppy and then introduce 2 more later? If I get 3 at one time, will they gang up on my current one or will they be one happy family? I don't want to stress my little guy out again.
