    How many guppies should I do in my 28g?
    It will also have ghost shrimp & and a Clown Pleco in it.
    I might do two rams in the tank aswell. Im going to research that alot in the next week or so though first. I've researched rams a couple times before.


    Im going to do all females due to the fact I don't want babies. I was thinking of doing all males due to males usually having stronger coloring but, If one female accidently gets mixed in at the store that would be horrible!

    10 should be good. Many variations of female guppies aren't colorful, but female snakeskins and female mosaics seem to be able to "compete" with their male counterparts in regards to coloration.

    Mine, too:(. I got my red cobra guppies at a fish auction. Are the "fancy" guppy females colorful? It seems to be hit or miss around here. LOL!

    Very true. Hopefully, you won't come home with any "prehit" females.
