Full Red Guppy Fish (scientific name: Poecilia reticulata var. "Full Red Albino") impress spectators by the vivid, solid red coloration that almost covers its entire body (in the case of male Full Red Guppy Fish). This freshwater fish is a relatively newer color strain of the classic guppy that has only very recently become available. Guppies are native to northeast South America. Despite the fact, most Full Red specimens available in the aquarium market nowadays are mainly captive-bred. Full Red Guppy Fish is quite easy-going in terms of water conditions, which makes them a strong suggestion for aquarium hobby beginners considering its hardiness, peaceful disposition, active personalities, and even cleverness enough to recognize you come near. It is also true to say the live-bearing fish can tolerate quite many beginner mistakes. Yet, given the stable water parameters environment (warm temperature around 70°F with hard water in the pH range of 6 – 8), Full Red Guppy Fish would thrive to their utmost. These little red guppy fish enjoy, in addition to warm aquarium water, moderate current flow. In wild habitat, the guppies live on shoals hence, in captivity, Full Red Guppy Fish will appreciate living in groups. A 10-gallon fish tank could not be more perfect for a colony of Guppies though the bigger the better. Stick to the rule of thumb that one fish per two gallons in case you are unable to decide the proper aquarium.
Apart from the above, Full Red Guppy Fish do not have any special requirements for their living environment. You can fill up your tank with any decorative materials like live aquatic plants, driftwood, rock caves, or substrate as long as they meet your personal taste. Guppy is truly fond of live aquarium plants and they surely enjoy the surroundings added with java moss, java fern, amazon sword plants.
Full Red Guppy Fish are often regarded peaceful animals, therefore, they can get along well with many fish sharing such common disposition, such as platies, neon tetras, or zebrafish and so on. Besides, they are also not picky at all when it comes to diet. Full Red Guppy Fish can accept a variety of common fish food such as pellets, fish flakes, frozen/dry foods, bloodworms, brine shrimp, etc. Sometimes, they even graze on algae growing inside your aquarium. All you need to do is make sure they feed on high-quality food once or twice every day, with an amount enough for them to consume in two or three minutes.
Only one thing that seems to be the issue yet interesting is breeding. Guppy is easy to breed. If you randomly search for ‘Easy to Breed Fish’, Guppy is always at the top. There is no need for external stimulation to cause this little fish to breed. When they mature, the male will naturally chase the female for courting. And just after one insemination, the female can easily give birth several times since they can store sperm for multiple breeding, even after parting from males. Hence, if you intend to have a guppy group or guppy only tank, remember to separate the male from female or else a population boom may occur.
