No , guppies are not considered coldwater fish. They are tropical fish native to warmer regions such as South America and the Caribbean. Guppies thrive in water temperatures ranging from 72°F to 82°F (22°C to 28°C). Therefore, they are classified as tropical Freshwater Fish rather than coldwater fish.
