"We purchased a platy but as it's grown we think it may be a swordtail hybrid. It's in a 29 gallon tank with a variety of tetras, 2 ghost catfish, 2 grommies and 3 cory catfish. We think all of the fish in the tank are male (at least that was our intent). Initially they seemed to get along okay but now we are seeing the swordtail demonstrate aggression towards all of the fish in the tank.. He's chasing and nipping at them. Everything we read states that they are typically peaceful fish. Has anyone experienced aggression in platy fish before? If so, any suggestions on how to deal with it? We do have another tank he can go in, but it's only 5 gallons and we've read they need at least 10 and they like company... Any thoughts or advice would be very helpful! Thanks!"
