What is the ratio of males to females? Do you have all males, all females, or a certain amount of males and females. You should probably stop at 6, just because more may cause overcrowding. The 1 inch of fish per gallon rule, and guppies get bigger than one inch, so just keep 6 in there. Do they have cool colors?

i have 2 males and 4 females, yeah they have cool colors, particularly the maels,..... but still the 10 gallon tank looks kind of empty to me with only 6 of them.

yeah it does probably look pretty empty, but to be on the safe side, I would just keep the 6 that you have now. Are you wanting them to breed/ because they probably will whether you like them to or not. They'll like the more space to swim around in, versus the tanks they're packed into in the pet stores.

Besides, you have the perfect ratio of males to females, so they're all probably happy. Do you have any preggo ones yet?

The fish love live food every now and then, so if they eat the fry, they will be happy. They will anyway, unless you keep them in a quarantine tank
