Yes, they will not fight, but they will breed and can have anywhere from 1-100 babies so if you want to breed them it is good and if you dont then it is not such a good idea. They will not harm each other Answer You shouldn't put any fish in a fish bowl unless you want to torture them! Give them a real aquarium. Most guppy aquariums are at least 5-10 gallons that's what i would consider. Hope this helps.

Any male Guppy (Lebistese reticulatus) can impregnate any female guppy. No matter what their common names are they are still guppies and provided they are male and female they can and will breed together.

All that is needed is a male guppy in with her.

The shape of the bowl, or aquarium, is not important. What is important is that it be equipped as a tropical fish habitat, with heater, aerator, thermometer, etc. If you do not have these things, then no, you cannot have a guppy in a fish bowl. It will have a very short lifespan if you try it.

A guppy fish is a live bearing fish, but the female generally does not take care of her young, and will eat them.

They don't. The female fish are less colourful.

Female guppies are larger and plainer. The male is distinctive for his long, flowing, colourful tail and generally brilliant colours.

i belive not because the bass fish is big and the guppy fish is small and they might not get along

The Gravid female will have the dark "gravid spot" in front of her vent. I can however assure you that if there has been a male in the same tank with a female guppy for any reasonable length of time she will be gravid.

The male guppy would not (highly unlikely) kill the female on purpose. When this situation happens though, it's usually because of an imbalance in your aquarium between male and female fish population. The golden rule is 2 female for 1 male fish, otherwise it's likely that the male fish will "harass" the female fish, which will make her stress out and eventually die.

Guppy fry are the newborn babies and guppy fish are not babies

User Avatar

Simple answer is yes you can. re: but the thing is that ur male guppy has a "need" and if ur female guppy doesnt give it to him, he s gonna keep on bothering, in the end ur female guppy will will bite ur male guppy, so i suggest 2 to 3 females per male. The advice given above is correct. BUT ONLY if your tank/fish container is large enough to hold that amount of fish. Remember the basic rule is 1" of fish needs 1Gal of water.

guppy's and sword tails can crossbreed!!

If you have a female guppy, and then you see that she has lost size and you have some small fish in with it that you didn't put in there, I can assure you that you would probably be correct if you assume that your Guppy has given birth.

No, a guppy isn't a reptile. A guppy is a fish.

do guppy fish have to have a filter in the tank

User Avatar

yes because the female will get killed if they fought a male fish. I know someone who has two female Betta fish and they are in the same bowl i thought they would fight as a result they don't fight they play tag and other games.NEVER EVER PUT TWO MALES INTO A FISH BOWL TOGETHER AND NEVER PUT A FEMALE WITH A MALE TOGETHER BECAUSE THEY WILL KILL EACH OTHER.
