    Can you guys give me some info on everything about guppies, as I have NEVER thought about having a Guppie tank. Could I use a 10 gallon aquairium?



    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Have you googled "guppy care & raising"? I imagine you'll find LOTS of info, rather than someone writing a novel here about aquarium care, setup, maintenance, fish care, population control of guppies, etc., etc.

    Most pet stores have tons of books about raising fish properly and there is even more info online.

    When I was a teenager I had a 10 gal guppy tank. Filled with lots of plants, so the babies had lots of cover to hide in. I let them breed at will and when the babies we're old and large enough to sex, the fish store let me trade them in for other fish or supplies. It was very easy, I don't remember any problems. Just minimal maintenence. I seem to remember at times having hundreds of babies in it, but lots did not survive to grow up. I also (with so much inbreeding, I think) had females getting colorful larger tails.
