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.

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.

Why would the male guppy kill the female guppy?

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.

Can you have just one female guppy in the tank with one male guppy?

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.
