    I am almost ready to start my 3x 20 long rack! I have a TON of ideas on what this will look like in the beginning and over time.

    Of course I am constantly looking for inspiration, so please show off your Guppy Breeding set up..

    All of them count. From the "oops I am suddenly accidentally breeding" to the full on "I am trying to perfect this guppy line"..

    From planted to 100% artificial

    Nice! Mine is completely different! Here's how it works:

    I have a bunch a male guppies in my tank, my friend has a bunch of females in her tank. I will lend her a male for a long period of time to impregnate her females in her tank. When they drop fry, we remove about half of the babies and put them in a self-sustained outdoor tub (55G) until they are large enough to be sold. Very complex. Good luck with your tanks!

    My set up is just a community tank (in a 38 bow front) and if they breed, they breed. I have a mesh breeder basket for any fry that I can rescue, then when they are 2 weeks old, I move them to the community tank where they can hide in the floating plants that are barricaded to that far left end by the magnetic shark decor. I’ve had 100’s of fry this way. My tank picked up a mystery disease though, so legit breeding is paused for the time being. The last female only dropped 7 fry, all of which are swimming happily in the community, and the last female might not survive until her drop. I can’t wait for the all clear in the tank though so I can be back at it.

    Hello Bear...

    Attached is a pic of my Guppy breeding tank. 60 gallons with immersed house plants to maintain a balanced water chemistry. There are more than 100 adults and fry. I feed the adults often, so they don't bother the fry. This way, I have quite a few survivors.

    Thank you for also including how you keep your guppies. This is helping me with my planning for short term and long term.!!
