Guppy - Assorted

Poecilia Reticulata

Perhaps the most widespread, widely available, and most loved aquarium fish of all, the Guppy is an extremely diverse and adaptable little fish that is very easy to keep and breed.

Locale: Occurs in the northern regions of South America, through much of Venezuela, Suriname and Guyana, amidst others, however can be found as an invasive species all over the globe - occurs in a wide variety of ecosystems, but seems to thrive best in algae and vegetation rich environments with middling flow.

Fun fact: Guppies are the species that many Hobbyists breed first, and it is not hard to see why, as for they are the first species kept for many hobbyists, and require next to no care to breed successfully, this has lead them to form invasive populations across the globe, from high-altitude, high-flow mountain rivers, to static wetland swamps, where there is water, guppies will breed.



Care difficulty - Beginner, hardy alkaline water fish.

Temperament - Peaceful, best kept in all-male tanks if no breeding is wanted, if breeding is welcomed, best to keep 2-3 times as many females as males, so that the females are not overwhelmed and overbred by males.

Adult size - 3-4cm for Males / 4-6cm for Females

Diet - Omnivorous; will eat both ends of the spectrum, from filament algae to small invertebrates and microcrustaceans, so in the Aquaria it is best to feed a staple diet of smaller pellets or flakes, and can have frozen or even live food dietary supplements, such as live or frozen brine shrimp, live black worms, frozen bloodworms, frozen mysis with spirulina, these should only be fed once or twice per fortnight.

Habitat - In the aquaria Guppies are very unfussy fish when it comes to environment, as they occur in almost every imaginable environment in the wild.
