i have successfully breed 5 strands of guppies in a 20 gallon tank with a power filter and some java moss and any other type of plant you want and of course add water If you want the fry (newborns)to have a better chance of survival, get a breeder container and place the preg. female in it before she releases her babies. Feed them powdered flake food, or fry food.
Breeding is easy but yet hard. All you need to do is get a boy and a girl guppy of course. If our going to have several guppies,then you don't get the same amount of boys and girls. You will also need a breeding net (choice) and a separate tank or lots of plants in the adult tank. The plants will allow the guppies to hide from the parents that will try to eat them.
2 cm for males (when they get very colorful) females, a little bigger
There is no breeding season. Male guppies will breed constantly. But sometimes they can get board with a female and not breed. So separate them for a bit then put them back together.
Based on my own experiences, guppies from PETSMART do not give birth to as large groups when they do, which is rare.
Only buy males or females.
The signs of guppy breeding is when the males (the more colorful fish) start chasing the female guppies (the duller ones). The female guppies should appear to become fatter, signifying that the fish is pregnant.
Guppies breed whenever, there is no special way that's kinda what their thing... breeding usually 50-100, depending on the species
For 2 guppies you need 2 gallons.
They probably will not :( im breeding and that just might happen to my guppy so I'll let you know :) Answer = they will not as I am an experienced breeder.
No. Guppies need a heater, whereas gold fish will overheat. Also, they will eat the guppies.
YES! and without mutations. So, breeding once leads to hundreds of gubbies.
You would need several hundred tanks, and at least 100 line bred fish to start with. Line breeding fish is not an easy or cheap undertaking.
NO, I'm a long time breeder and I've had over 100 liters and my males haven't showed one sign of sickness or death also just to let you know as long as your female has had at least one liter then she doesn't need a male to have more babies. also i hope your prepared to have a millon babies in your tank because guppies give birth constently.but i think guppies are the best fish you could have because they come in many shapes and colors . I'm breeding fancy guppies and i found out that about 80% of them are red cobra guppies.wish me luck with my breeding.
You could either sell some of your guppies so as they won't breed, sell the guppy babies you have online or at yur local pet store or keep one of your guppies in one of the seperator tanks you get for your main tank.
I am fairly certain that you need to have a breeding licenes.
No, guppies are livebearers which means they have live babies (called guppy fry). The females and males will eat them once they are born, but some will live by hiding or if you put them in a breeding trap.
ten guppies would be about maximum for ten gallons. only keep males if breeding is unwanted. if there is a female i am sure that there will soon be more then ten.
technically you dont need any. but if you want to you can use breeding hobbles and boots for the stallion and etc.
food and water.
yes guppies are hot watered fish so they need a heater and a filter also to be feed unlike an alge eater
You will probably spend more than you make they don't make a very good profit.
Yes, but sometimes one might peck at the other.
Yes guppies do need light to live. Its all about the light inside of the food. Also, the guppies feed off of the energy in their food. It's pretty much like a food web.
