I bought two male guppies for my 5 gallon tank and moved my guppy girls into the community 10 gallon, which has lost several tetras (one to dropsy, three due to having been dyed - duh me why was I dumb enough to buy dyed fish?). After they were quarantined, I moved them around for the moment so that I have one girl with each male. I plan to breed them, put the boys in a different 5 gallon, allow the girls to give birth in the original 5gal, move the girls back to the community tank, grow the babies until they are old enough to split between the 5 gallon tanks, the 10 gallon tanks, and giving to either a fish store or a teacher who keeps guppies in his pond. So, on to my question: how long should I leave the girls with the boys? a day? a week? a month?
