Ask a store associate for details. These fascinating fish are livebearers who can rapidly reproduce in a community aquarium because they give birth to babies, rather than laying eggs. To aid in survival, provide hiding spaces for baby fish. Guppies are omnivores, which mean they eat both plan and animal matter, including small live foods and certain vegetables.

You will see your guppy swimming in the middle and at the top of your aquarium. To create a beautiful aquarium environment, be sure to add some bottom swimmers as well. Ask a PetSmart associate to help you choose.

Things to remember

Adding fish
Whether you're just starting your aquarium or introducing new fish to your tank, don't forget to add only 1-3 at a time.

Nutrition
Choose a vegetable-based flake or pellet food. Feed according to the directions on the packaging.

Specialty foods
Vary their diet by including frozen or freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex worms and other small worms, mosquito larvae and daphnia. Always remember to thaw frozen foods before feeding.

Frequent feedings
For optimum health, feed your livebearers as much food as they will consume in 1-3 minutes, twice a day. You can alternate between regular staple diet feedings and 2-4 meals per week of a specialty food.

Aquarium
Livebearers should be kept in a large aquarium, with surface area being more important than depth. Minimum aquarium size should be 10 gallons. A good rule of thumb is one gallon of water for every one inch of full-grown fish.

Décor
Decorate their aquarium with lots of live, bunch plants. Be sure to place them on the sides and back of the aquarium so they'll have enough space to swim in the center.

Filtration
Livebearers need well-oxygenated water, but do not like forceful water motion.

Salt
Mollies require a small amount of salt in their aquarium. Add two teaspoons of aquarium salt per gallon of water This will not harm other types of fish living in the aquarium.

Fish compatibility
Livebearers can share their aquarium with other tropical community fish of similar size and temperament, as long as they share similar water requirements

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Fish I went to PetSmart to look at the fish for a future aquarium and I was amazed by how healthy the Guppies were (and all the other fish), so I had to get some for my community tank. I chose a Blonde Tux Delta Guppy male and several females and they are all awesome little fish and very active.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very lively These little guys are really great for a beginner tank. The only thing I have to say is that you must get a heater for the tank because guppies are really sensitive about the temperature. They love warm water. My guppies know when I enter the room and swim in front of the tank to get my attention. They also know when food is given to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cute! I got three of these little guys today and they are adorable! I named the Abuelo, Papi and Nino (because of their sizes). Coincidentaly, Abuelo died. I think he got cut up by the net when the lady was taking him out, as he diddnt want to get into it, and I diddnt notice until we got him home. Its sad that he died so soon, but the other guys are so adorable! They chase each other, swim in the current of the filter and swim across the tank really fast. They are super easy to deal with and make me smile all the time. Highly recomended.
