Is it possible to do all male guppies? Or is it better to do them in pairs or 1 male to 3 females? I'm planning on getting 4 Red Cobra in a 29 gallon community tank, I don't necessarily want babies but I want them to get along and want at least one male.

They might be aggressive to each other if you keep males only. It depends on the guppy. It could work.

What other fish do you have in your tank?

They would be my first fish. I have a 29 gallon & am planning on them, tetras, cories & a dwarf gourami

If you are referring to my comment I meant it's just that you have a better chance for them to work out, I too have guppies that weren't bred together that are getting along very well. It's just that some people have guppies that do end up bullying one another if they weren't bred together but some have it working just fine

First ive heard of this but good to know what signs should you look out for if they are bullying as i was thinking of expanding with new ones in another tank?

Yes! When guppies are kept in gender-only tanks they actually can live longer! Not breeding helps their health
