I found out that endler fish are not available in my area and will never be available in my area. What other live bearer fish would be good with 3 fancy guppies?
none in the size of tank that you have but you could add 2 more male guppies, both platies and mollys get 2 inches and up
Have you seen the lyre tail guppies
What about 1 Platy?
You could do 3 male guppys and 1 platy but I wouldn't add anymore than that
Could I do 5 fancy guppies?
1 male, 3 or 4 female? The petco nearby will take fish donations. (As in fry!)
do you have a spare tank to put the fry in with that many females your looking at 20-60 fry per female every 28 days
Females produce a lot of babies and if you wish to breed I would say for a tank that size I would keep 1 male and 2 females (you will find it hard to part with the babies)
I had a female drop fry on me 6 days after I got her as she came pregnant
I think I'd rather have all male guppies then! What about a bamboo shrimp in with the other shrimp?
Okay mixing shrimp isn't really the best way to go, an example being my friend who had RCS's and a lone Ghost shrimp, she wasn't cluing in why her shrimp disappeared without leaving bodies and they weren't in hiding, until she was explain what was in her tank, well guess what she had one well fed ghost shrimp and no RCS as soon as she removed the ghosty the RSC's she put in the tank thrived and bred
True, but let's not take that post that literally...... some are better, some are worse.
Haha, just had to mention
Move the conversation .
Guppies have been overbred to the point where they are somewhat sensitive, especially the ones you have at your pet store. You'd be better off with endlers for sure, they are much hardier and able to withstand a cycle better.
