I went to this new pet store and got some feeding guppies, they are just babies and I felt sorry for them , seeings their fate was being eaten, and I have them in a ten gallon tank. They are all a pale white color and I was wondering if they were going to get colorful like the adults in the other tanks. I may sound stupid for askingg this but im not sure. The other adult guppies are very colorful with orange and purple or blue red and so on. I want to know they are going to gain color like them. ( they are guppies )

they should color up with proper diet and clean water how big are they right now? you can feed them baby brine shrimp and crushed up flake food a few times a day

every one is telling me that they wont color up. since they arent fancy guppies but just feeder guppies, i have heard good personality but bad coloring. i have some that are about 3 cm and some are like 2cm REALLY tiny! I feed them crushed fish food. they have clean water and some plants. I have a platy that is almost ready to give birth, can i put the newborn platys with the newborn guppies?

Yes I do understand the rules of life and all but if i have a chance and the room in my tanks to save some of them then i will.

i dont think they'll be as colorful as fancy guppies, but they should color up a little. if they're already 2-3 centimeters you probably won't see a whole lot of difference, but it's still possible
