Is my fish shop right?

Postby HBpencil99 » Fri Sep 14, 2012 2:16 pm

My fish shop has told me that guppies, platys and mollies are hardy first fish but, from what i have heard, from here is that they aren't or not as much as say danios. Are they right??
Thanks :D

I started my tank with swordtails, then added male guppies. I lost one swordtail at the very start due to the high ammonia levels when the cycle started up but other than that I have had no problems with the guppies (or the swordtails).
