Okay, that makes me realllly mad > that someone is keeping a Guppy in a bowl! That's kind of funny you say 'equivalent of goldfish' because goldfish cannot for any reason be kept in a bowl, and anyone who is planning to keep one in a bowl will be presented with a nice looooooong list of why not! I have 4 guppies myself, two of them are babies of another. Many beginners keep Guppies because they are told they are very hardy, but unfortunately that is changing due to greedy breeders who breed tons and tons of fish for quantity not quality because they know they can sell them all. I have heard a few of you on here complain about Guppies never staying alive, even in nice aquariums.Emma said:My favorite is guppies, even if they are thought of by most as the equivalent of goldfish (my little sister's friend has one in an unheated, unfiltered, bare, tiny goldfish bowl) because they are hardy and beautiful!
