Well, I am a trained guppy professional and i will tell you what you need to know. First you should start out with 30 guppies and decide if you like to have that much. Second, you kill them and wonder what you have done wrong..... but you will still have a little left over.Then you overlook all the guppies and choose 2. You then separate your 2 best fish from the other 27 and put them in a bag full of water(separate). Sell your guppies for 50 cents each and then you will have some money. Now you got your 2 best fish left, mate them and you will have about 30 guppies,start the process all over again. YOU WILL GAIN A LOT OF MONEY DOING SO....... TRUST ME



as many as you desire. but keep a ratio of 1 male to every 3 females, so theres no tail nipping
