Guppies are probably the most popular livebearer among both aquarium owners and advanced breeders. The once humble guppy has become a sought after fish for hobbyists with selective breeding resulting in a wide variety of colours and fin shapes. These fish are generally robust and can tolerate a wide range of aquarium conditions and for this reason they are often recommended for beginners. However, because of intense selective breeding, fancy guppies can be harder to maintain than their wild ancestors. For this reason it is important to try and maintain water which is slightly hard and alkaline otherwise they can become prone to bacterial infections. Max Size: 4.5cm

Feeding

An active fish, guppies use an enormous amount of energy and need to be fed at least 3 times a day, with a variety of foods including dry, fresh, frozen or live foods. Guppies are top feeders and will readily take most prepared foods.

Compatibility

Guppies are suited to a densely planted community tank with other peaceful fish. It is best to choose tank mates with similar water requirements slightly alkaline hard water in their aquarium. Avoid stocking with larger or aggressive species which will nip at them because of their brightly coloured tails. Male guppies may continuously harass female guppies if kept together, a ratio of one male to two females will reduce stress.
