    I got that female guppy that I've raised from fry and now, she's with all the others and she was ok but this morning, I looked at her and on her left side just behind the fin, she got a huge piece of skin missing... she also have been severly fin nipped on the tail and the anal fin... (maybee the males ?)... Is there something I could do to save her ? and why it's happenning now ? she never had any problems with the others... :(

    I think I'll drop all the livebreeders/tetra and I'll go with cichlids....

    Separate her? Move her to another tank? Fish can be relentless once they decide to "oust" a tank mate.
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    I tried to isolate her using a breeding separator... but she's now laying on the side on the bothom... she's giving a fin move once in a while... but I don't think she'll make it :( but oh well... I've notice she has started to bleed on the side... so, there's probably not much I can do...
