About the Guppy
- Very popular, available in most aquatic shops
- Many different colour varieties
- Peaceful and easy to look after
- Relatively clean
Guppies breed very frequently, so housing mixed sexes can quickly result in an over-populated aquarium. We recommend housing females only. Males prefer to live with females to give them something to do, otherwise they may fight. When housing both males and females, at least two females should be housed per male. This is because males are always on heat and can cause females exhaustion.
