Nursery tank

Hi guys, I have recently set up a small nursery tank for my baby guppies. What fish would you put in the tank (that wouldn't eat the babies)

Why do you want to put other fish in it if it is a nursery tank?
Guppy fry grow quickly and need all the space they can get!

Nursery tanks are purely to protect the fry from larger fish and to facilitate good, rapid, growth.

I would just keep it to Guppies, at the rate they breed you won't have room for other fish :lol:
