Hi there, my 29 gallon tank is stocked with 4 bronze corycats, 1 mickey mouse platy, 2 black tuxedo platies, and 2 dwarf flame gouramis. However, recently one of my black tux platies has been slightly aggressive towards the other black platy. I know for a fact they're both females, and the one (her name is Georgie) isn't just like that during feeding time. I'll catch her nipping the other's (Frida's) tail. Is it like platies to be slightly aggressive like this? Maybe it's normal... I honestly don't know. Confused
Thanks a bunch! --Cork

The only time I've seen a Platy be over aggressive is when they were stressed. Is your aquarium fully cycled? What are your water parameters?

Yes, my tank's fully cycled. Ammonia and Nitrite levels at 0, nitrate at 10ppm. She seems to have settled down a bit more... haven't caught her nipping today. I was hanging a picture on the wall yesterday, though... maybe the hammering and noise?
