We have a powder blue guppie, very pretty fish, and we added 2 black moor's to the tank. We were told by the person working in the fish department that they could co-habitate . . . well . . . guess what didn't happen. That little tiny guppie killed one of our new black moor's. So . . . they aren't that community friendly. Just be careful what you put together in your tank.

I LOVE GUPPIES and have 7 aquariums full of them. Today I am setting up a 55 gal. aquarium so I will have room for more babies! I now have beautiful blues of all types also fantastic orange ones with black bodies and baby blue top and bottom fins that are so pretty. Guppies are fun to breed as you can come up with many different colors and you can,with their help, create a new line of your own. I used to sell them to pet shops and might do it again. This is a fun hobby for people of any age and I highly recommend it.

hi im tashfiq. I have 12 guppies. I got some from my friend. They breed in 3 weeks. be careful, guppies will eat there fry. u will want to have double the females then males if u want them to breed. remember they produce live babies. And they rock

i have a ten gallon tank for breeding guppies. although they say they will eat small fry, i never take out the babies and i still have lots, to many anyway. the only fish in there that has ever eaten a baby was a sword tail that died. but its offspring are still alive today, and breeding. but i must admit that the guppies are not big, maybe an inch or so, including the fin.

I actually bought 6 assorted colored balloon mollies. I have never owned such interesting fish. They enjoy the entire tank. Two days before Christmas, I awoke to 23 fry. All are still healthy and active, but when they get a little bigger, I am going to have to get another fish tank, lack of space and all.

i have kept guppies for about three years. often i would find my tank crowded and would give them away to friends. i have found that aquarium salt helps. and if you do it right you can transition your guppies to a salt water tank. they don't breed as well in salt water.

Right now I have 4 mollies. 1 of them a sailfin and the other three lyretails. They are easy to take care of yet I found that a few of them have a tiny white dots on their tails and fins and was wondering what it was. They are mixed w/ a pair of guppies. (Editor: spots are possibly ick which mollies can be prone too. This is easily medicated with an ick medicine such as Aquarisol and raising the temperature to about 83 Degrees F during the treatment.)

Hello, I just got 4 guppies from a petstore. Those pet peaple were so nice that they gave us the 3 baby guppies for free. But my gold fish ate 1 baby guppie. The one got eaten right away so beware if you get a baby guppie, separate them right away. So far I have now 3 female guppies, one is preganant. i have one male and 2 babies.

Hello I just had 3 guppies, I had 2 females and 1 male guppy. But the male guppy was not very friendly. it died when trying to bite my platys. the platys are very good community fish but so are guppies, this was the only one I noticed that was trying to bite. Usually gupies have babies in 20-30 days but do not worry if you have a female guppie but no male. if the female sees the male once it will have babies. So I just bought a male guppie with 1 femaLe and it is a great community fish.
