Guppy Care & Maintenance
In the wild, guppies are widely distributed north of the Amazon, in the Caribean, and extensively introduced into tropical and subtropical regions outside of their original home range. In the hobby since the early 1900s, the Guppy is one of the most popular and best known fish in the hobby. It was named after Thomas Guppy who was the first one to identify it. There are hundreds of different color and pattern variations available in the hobby. They are adaptable, hardy fish and breed easily. Guppies can be kept in a wide range of aquarium conditions and are ideal for mixed community aquariums because of their small size and friendly disposition.

The female guppy gives birth to live offspring. Large females can produce over 150 fully-formed and free-swimming fry every 4-6 weeks. Unfortunately, they are likely to be cannibalized soon after birth unless they are separated from their parents (e.g. breeder chamber) or provided with lots of hiding places (e.g. floating plants). It is recommended to house these fish in well-planted aquariums with good lighting and some open swimming space. The fish will accept a wide range of foods, including flakes and small pellets.
Guppies can be kept with many other peaceful fishes, including tetras, plecos, cories, rasboras and many other community fish.
