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.
