HELP!! Male guppy attmpting baby goldfish murder!

Postby Elly » Mon Jul 02, 2007 3:23 am

I just assembled a new tank consisting of 2 african dwarf frogs, 8 neon tetras, a baby calico fantail goldfish, two blue mystery snails (who have yet to open fully and move...) and 3 fancy guppies (1 very large tailed, very pregnant female and two males). All of the fish are fine except for my yellow "tattooed" male guppy. He won't leave my faintail alone!!!! The poor thing is hiding in the shadows and he keeps chasing poor Nibbles. My female guppy should be giving birth within 5 days and I want the pretty yellow male to breed with her so I don't want to take him out (sometimes he chases her too...) And I really like Nibbles in my tank. WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!

Goldfish aren't tropical community fish at all. I'm surprised your goldfish hasn't eaten the guppy yet.
Also chances are the female guppy won't give birth to the yellow guppies babies anytime soon. They hold on to the same sperm for months and have multiple batches of babies from it.

The goldfish is less than 2". I know that female guppies can hold sperm for 6 months but right before and for a little while after they give birth they release a pharimone letting the males know that they are ready to mate. The new sperm is "used" as well as the old sperm. Both of my males and what ever other fish she has bred with can sire her next batch. I know gold fish aren't tropical, but my tank is cold water, he is small, and since he is a fantail he is fairly slow moving so even if he was agressive the other fish would have a great chance at getting away because they all swim much faster than Nibbles. Like I said and need help with, my guppy is bullying my goldfish...

I have a fantail goldfish too. Only about 2 inches. He had a swim bladder problem and couldn't swim much so I put him in my 10 gallon guppy tank so he would be able to go to the surface for air. It helped him and he was swimming fine. I kept him in there for a few extra days to be safe and soon all my guppies were gone. The tank was full of guppies and I was down to about 4. Soon enough your goldfish will take a turn and eat your guppy if it keeps annoying him.

My tank had a lot of places to hide too. My goldfish could barely swim but it managed too. It will work for a limited time but eventually they will be gone. It's your decision for your tank so I really can't say much. Trust me everyone in the tank will eat the babies. If you have a lot of plants some will live but sadly most won't make it. No clue how to get the snail out of the shell. How long have you had the snail? How was it aclimated?

The snails finally came out. I really won't be too upset if several babies get eaten. I know she will have more and I don't know what the dads looked like.
