Description

Blonde Red Male Guppy

The male Guppy is one of the most popular tropical fish. They are bright and colourful which really stands out in any aquarium. Originating from South America, Guppies can be found in mountain streams as well as brackish rivers. Wild Guppies can be found around the world in places like Barbados, Trinidad, Singapore, Venezuela and the USA.

Can I buy a breeding pair of Blonde Red Guppy?
No sorry, we do not offer breeding pairs of this guppy species. Assorted female guppies are available via our website, sold separately.

Do Guppies change gender?
No, guppies cannot change their gender. An easy way to tell male and female guppy live-bearers apart is to look at the anal fins. The males have a gonopodium which looks like a stick where the females have a fanned anal fin.

Can Guppy's breed without a male fish present?
No, but a unique feature among female guppies is their ability to give birth to several broods consecutively without male insemination occurring each time. This is possible because of special folds in the female's genital area that store sperm for up to 6 months until needed for fertilization. This explains 'phantom' births in female-only guppy setups.

Ease of care
Easy. Its recommended that the sexes be kept 2 females to every 1 male. Males will harass the females otherwise.

Compatibility
Guppies are a peaceful community fish but are typically fantailed and long-finned, so avoid housing guppy with fin-nipping fish such as galaxy rasbora or tiger barbs.

Diet
Feed tropical fish flake or small granules. Take care not to overfeed.

Breeding

Guppies are live bearers so will spawn prolifically. Females can store sperm for up to 6 months, and can give birth to between 10 and 30 fry every 6 weeks. Guppy's can be sexed after around 5 weeks, males have a modified anal fin called the gonopodium.

Life Span
Blonde Red Male guppy's can live 1-2 years in perfect conditions.
