Guppy Red and Black, Guppies - Tropical

Guppy Red and Black

This entertaining fish is one of the most extensively bred and readily available fish of recent years. It makes a bright addition to the middle and top of the tank. Males (3cm) are clearly recognized by their brightly-coloured fan tail, whereas females are larger (6cm) and duller. Breeding is easy approximately at 4 week intervals; females give birth to live young. Bushy plants will provide cover for young fry and may allow a few to survive in a community tank. Females may already be pregnant when purchased. As females can store sperm, a female can give birth to several separate broods without a male. An undemanding fish, although due to captive breeding (all brightly coloured guppies are captive-bred), their hardiness is much reduced compared to wild guppies, and they have become more demanding of good water conditions.
