Dragon Red Guppy FishRegular price $15.99
The wonderful Guppies Fish(scientific name: Poecilia reticulata) will “beat out” all other fish due to its variations, each of which presents a stunning appearance, interesting personalities and vivid look for your aquarium.
Guppy Fish are native to northeast South America. Despite the fact, most specimens available in the aquarium market nowadays are mainly captive-bred. The process happened to generate countless Guppies with differences in coloration, pattern, and tail shape. It is not uncommon to find one Guppy in a “dress” of striking tiger-like patterns and another covered with solid red and gold “cloth”. This live-bearing fish is quite easy-going in terms of water conditions (can even live in a brackish environment). It is said that Guppies are able to tolerate beginner mistakes, which makes them a great choice for one who just steps into this hobby.
In wild habitat, Guppy lives in shoal hence, they will appreciate it if you keep them in groups. When doing so, remember to separate the males from females or else a population boom may occur. This is because Guppy females can store sperm for multiple breeding, even after parting from males.
Guppies are peaceful in general. They will be lovely neighbors of your community fish having platies, neon tetras, or zebrafish.
