Guppies and what other fish get along?
guppies get along with anyone who will not eat them or there babies. but even then theres no fighting gust guppies getting eating.
It is a misconception that betta fish do not get along with other fish. While intolerant to their own species, bettas can get along with other fish so long as they are not easy to mistake for another male betta - such as fancy guppies - or fin-nipping fish like many tetras that often go for long-finned fish. Female bettas can be housed with guppies, however.
Guppies are livebearers, so the place to start is with other livebearers. Guppies will happily enjoy living with platies, swordtails, and mollies. Other possible fish that you can put them with include tetras and danios. Choose small fish that won't prey on the guppies, and do not choose any fish with impressive fins-the guppies may nip them.
There are two kinds of 'albino' catfish commonly seen in aquariums. One is the albino channel catfish....which will grow to be VERY LARGE and will eat anything it can put in its gaping mouth...the other kind is the albino corydoras catfish. The corydoras will get along PERFECTLY with guppies and just about any aquarium fish...'library' or not.
Guppies are not the only fish, that give birth. Almost every kind of fish gives birth. However, guppies are pretty easy to give birth. Other fish, such as betta fish, most tropical fish, and angelfish are rather hard to breed, because they are aggressive and will eat their own young. So, I suggest guppies if you want to breed fish.
Many many many fish get along with guppies. Guppies are very peaceful live bearing fish. They breed readily in the aquarium and quite prolifically if left unchecked. Some suggested tank mates are, most kinds of tetras (not all), rasboras, danios, platys, mollies, swordtails, cherry barbs, gold barbs, just to name a few. Look up info online about guppies and most info will list suitable tanks mates.
Male guppies have larger colorful tails. They are called "fancy tailed guppies". The tails measurement from tip to tip is normally 1 eight to 1 quarter longer than the fish itself. FYI...Guppies are heavy breeders, females will eat all the babies weather hungry or not. You must use a breading net available at fish stores. The perfect fish to have with guppies is the "neon tetra" as they get along. The worst two are the…
I made the mistake of adding 2 male guppies in with my 3 Glofish. The Glofish are so hyper that they got to picking on the guppies and eventually eat their tails...killing them. If you have a number of guppies and glofish, I would suggest a larher number of guppies to glofish. (Also female Glofish tend to be a little more aggressive, but get along great with my Dalmation Mollies. Hope this helps!
Guppies are considered community fish, there are a number of other fish that can be kept with guppies in the same tank, mollies, platies, swordtails, etc. Keep in mind that even if certain fish are considered community fish, there may be a bully or an aggressive fish in the bunch. Watch your tank for fin nipping or for fish being chased by another (not including males of the same species going after a female)
