Guys I've noticed that my guppy's fin tail is getting nipped during the last three days, is another fish doing that?
He used to swim like crazy last in the flow untill few days back but now is almost at the surface not enjoying at all, seems like sad, althought he eats.

Fishtank mates are 5 dwarf japan guppies, 11 galaxy danio and 5 lampeyes. And then the shrimps and snails.



I haven't see any fish doing him nothing unless they're doing it at night or when I'm not watching. Can be the cause other thing?

Thanks

Ah i'd say it's just a bit of fin nipping from another fish/fishes Aroshni........I wouldn't be overly worried,these things happen.

He has now the fin more damaged, when the lights went off I saw one of the dwarfs guppies bitting his tail.They were peaceful and used to swim in group and know he has become Hannibal Lecter.

Now the guppy stays in the bottom of the tank sometimes and tries to hide under one of the wood pieces.

What can I do?

have the same trouble from the smallest of blonde guppies. stick the fish with the hannibal tendencies in a fry trap or the innocent victim .it wont stop the problem but mite give him a rest for long enough to recover or think about his actions in hannibals case . if you decide to go that route pour some water from your tank in the fry trap to freshen it up. or you could do a search on here for a post with diy fry trap with air driven sponge filter i searched but cant find it could need rewording
