Fish and Hamster Question. I some platties in a 20 gallon tank, and one just started nipping at the new fish?

Asked By: Elizabeth
I've had a 20 Gallon tank that's been sat up for quite a few months. I had bought some platties, guppies, tetras, and have one small gold fish in the mix. (I didn't have anywhere else to put him but he's doing great) However, one of the platties that's been in the tank since it was sat up, is running the gold fish since I introduced him to the tank. It's a female (To be it all) and she continues to just hang around it, follow it, and every now and then nipping at it. Why is she doing that? Should I allow her to continue and she'll stop? I also have a hamster that I purchased, and had for about a month. She's healthy, and fed the proper diet, and gets treats every now and then! However, recently, for about a week now, she's not been that active. She's been sleeping alot, she's not been running on her hamster wheel, or anything. She's been sleeping later, and later, and isn't up at night much anymore. Is she sick? Or maybe, need's a bigger cage? What caused the change in her playful personality?

Asked By: Alley
all I see at Home Depot is untreated pine wood, I'm not sure if it's kiln-dried or not but I was wondering if it HAD to be kiln-dried or could it just be regular untreated pine wood.
