    MOST guppies are very good for beginners - the males are good to get because you won't have problems with breeding ( often, females come from the store pregnant ) and besides, males are more prettier.

    What size tank do you have? Any other occupants?

    Here are my males -

    In my experience it hasn't really mattered just color differences. I've been breeding mine out for about a decade.

    I don't remember what they started as (I bought the first 5 pairs about 11 years ago) but I bred them to have an arrow shape on tail, I call them goofyboots guppies, very few of my males have this anymore though. Now I'm breeding in split tails.

    Awesome! I breed split-tails, too, but I've mainly been focusing on color recently.

    More on topic, I've never met a guppy that wasn't good with tank mates. There won't be any differences in temperament unless you get some specifically bred for such.

    I agree, other than their own fry they are harmless, its a fish if it'll fit in it's mouth it'll prolly eat it.

    I also had brought some guppies about six years ago. I didn't add new guppies to them. They breeded and changed to look like wild guppies.
