Might be a tumor or something similar. Isolate the fish just to be safe. I wouldn't worry too much about getting TB from your fish :)

In the absence of any other fin nippers, I'd have to say it is a water quality issue. What size tank? and how many fish in total?

Congratulations.
Let them rear the first couple of batches of fry. If none survive, you can artificially rear some from future spawns.

Dwarf puffers. But, they may go after other small fish. Loaches are happier in groups, and a 10 is somewhat small for a group.

How long is the 30? Scissortails are very active fish, I'd recommend atleast a 4' long tank.

It is usually not a good idea to add medications to your main tank. Move the fish to a small tank or bucket and treat there.

It is quite possible the fish are still getting used to your tank. Try starving them for a couple of days. If they still will not eat, get some live food.

Never kept this fish myself but, it stays small (<3"), reportedly easy to breed, should not cause any trouble in your current setup.

Google "desert goby"... their care is similar.

Common pleco's will grow to over a foot long... not a good idea to get them unless you have a 55 gallon or larger.

No point risking the betta. Take the pleco to the store.
