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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 Beautiful guppies I Purchased three of these back about a year ago and they are doing great! I have been able to successfully breed them and am now raising guppy fry. The colors are a bit dull but that is ok because they are friendly fish and their personalities are very colorful, I would definitely recommend this type of fish for a lovely addition to your tank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minnie the Guppy! Minnie came to me with her buddy (a male fancy guppy) and 4 other tank mates. She lives a happy life in her 15 gallon aquarium. Shes a very giving fish and only eats what she needs to stay healthy and lets the others eat the rest of it. Shes very hardy and cute to watch! Guppy's are amazing fish i would completely recommend a guppy to any community tank! They need a clean environment, friends, AT LEAST 5 gallons and a healthy diet! Do your research on these little guys though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun beginner fish Before you go out and buy a male and female guppy, be sure you know what you're going to do with those babies! They will reproduce and often. Some stores will take them back to be resold for super cheap (more than feeder fish but less than what the regular fish are so your babies aren't going to be eaten) our local Petsmart is not one of those stores. Guppies are fun, easy and super hardy, even those hundreds of babies they have are hardy little guys. Awesome fish for kids and adults alike.

It says they need salt, do they really?

Asked by: Joe Brown
Guppies and Mollies BOTH require a little salt in the water. Only use aquarium salt, NOT table salt like some people will try to tell you. You can use less than the recommended amount however, try 2-3 teaspoons for 10gallons. If their fins get ratty however, do more frequent water changes and double the salt.

Can I put 3 in my 10 gallon? Got 5 little neon tetras in there already

Asked by: Tetra859
Yeah but it is recommended to put 1 male with 2 females because they are livebearers. If you only put 1 male and 1 female, the female will be constantly harassed
