Hey guppy,

I have guppies in my tank... is it safe to put any of those fish with guppies? Both for adults and guppy fry?

bms,

That's hair algae. Watch your ferts.

The mollies may be a little aggressive with your guppy fry as would the FFF. Try to remove by hand. If you have access to algae eating shrimp, you may try them.

I have mollies in with my guppies. The small yucatan type. They are more interested in grazing. Fry are everywhere. Not saying a fry or two don't disappear once and while but they definately don't go out of their way.

Yamatoes will help to some extent but you need to do the work as well. Remove as much of the infected leaves and if necessary add back more plants when pruning is excessive. Check and monitor your DIY CO2 level...make sure the CO2 stays good and high (20-30ppm range) when the lights are on. That is the biggest issue for you...nutrients are easy when you had the CO2 nailed.
