Hello, for guppies to be truly happy fish warm water is the go. Ive heard of some people having guppies in cold water but they arnt very successful and they normally die after a short while. Basically what u want to do with fish is do a bit of research on the wild habitat of that particular fish and try to match your tank setup close if not identical to that. Some fish are the exception tho depending on how they are bred, so check with ur aquarium first... Then u will have nothing but happy fish!
