Hello. I am relatively new to fish keeping and I have built up to a 125l aquarium over the last six months. It's a busy community tank with mollies, guppies a few Cory's, three angel fish and some harlequins. They've been breeding and happy, but a few weeks ago I introduced, with the advice of my local fish place, a rainbow fish and a hero severum. All is not as harmonious. The new fish don't hurt the others, but they chase them away from centre stage. My mollies don't seem happy...we'll you wouldn't be. Any tips? Please?

Welcome to the forum
a 33 gallon / 125 L is a little small for severum. I think your tank might be a little over stocked
You might get a lot more responses if you were to post your question in the general aquarium section of the forumIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Lose the severum and the rainbow fish and do some research before you add fish instead of going by shop advice.
Oh, and welcome!
