GuppiesWell, it depends on how many guppies you have. A one gallon should be fine for up to three guppies. Just be sure that they are all of one sex! AnswerWell, for each inch of a fish you need atleast 1 gallon. Big I know, but don't forget fish can grow. So during that growing period you will have to buy more and more fish. So, you should just buy a 10 gal tank for 5 guppies, and the minimum amount of fish you need for guppies since they are "community fish" is 5. That's what I did and that's what many sites online have told me to do. You could also ask one of your pets store's employees around the fish area and they will tell you all you need to know. Just make sure you get a good helping of plants and hiding areas for them. Good Luck with your fish.

How many guppies a week do crayfish eat?

Without much more information the question can not be answered accurately. Crayfish are scavengers and guppies are not their natural prey. If the crayfish is small enough and your guppies don't have long flowing fins then the guppies may well be too fast for the crayfish to catch. So the answer then would be none. Are you feeding the crays dead guppies? If so I would add one and see how long it takes the crayfish to eat it. Then I would add more and more dead guppies one at a time as the crayfish devours them. As the crayfish grows so it will eat more.

No, probably not. They're just as small/ smaller than guppies... however... The Neons are a shoal fish and like to be kept in groups of around 6 or more.
