So I just bought two male guppies from Petsmart but one looks more like a female so I was wondering if you guys could tell me what you think. So I was wondering if you guys could tell me what you think.
Some will still survive and you'll be overrun eventually. Why put the female through the stress of pregnancy and birth if you're going to let them be eaten? The easier and fairer thing to do would be to exchange her for a male guppy.Ok so I will get another female. What I want to do is let the female have her fry and do survival of the fittest:-/ but if I do this will most of them get eaten? Like y'all said I don't want to be over run! I don't mind having a couple more guppies though.

Doesn't mean Bamafish353 needs to be responsible for her though. I personally would return her and get a male. Being overrun with fry is stressful and not fun.Yes, but... Trading wouldn't stop her from giving birth, and she may or may not end up in a bad situation with someone that doesn't care. I think it's fine to keep her or to give her back, but that's just my opinion. Well let me ask this, what size tank is it? If you have a LFS that will take them when they are big enough, I'd think it would be fine. That's what I do with my platies.
Guppies are very active fish and like to explore; the minimum I would say is 5 gallons. 2 gallons would be really cutting it...I currently have them in a 10 gallon. Could I put the girl in a filtered 2 gallon for her to live? I don't think my lps would take her back.
Ok the male I had I I just found dead and the other girl I purchased has blood marks like the male has been fighting her
] the faint red that you see around the abdomen I couldn't get a good pic
Male guppies shouldn't be that fat, so yes.So does he have bloat then? All the other fish seem normal but he has been acting weirdView attachment 453523View attachment 453524View attachment 453525View attachment 453526
Boil a garden pea, skin it & dice it into bite sizes.Care to give me a run down on this pea trick I hear talk of? Would save me trying to track it down. The gist of what I have seen is give them a single sweet pea?
