AQUARIUM CARE: A terrific community fish that will breed easily in a community tank. Because of it's bright colours, ease of keeping and mild temperament, the guppy is one of the all-time most popular aquarium species, probably the best first fish for a new aquarist.

BREEDING: This requires almost no attention. The live-borne fry can be raised on flake food. Remove fry to a separate rearing tank or provide a well-planted tank to improve numbers surviving to adulthood.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Cichlids? There are estimated to be over 2000 different Cichlid species in the wild, of all sizes, shapes and colours. Many require very specialist conditions such as those coming from the sandy/rocky waters of Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika. Others, such as the Apistogramma dwarf cichlids from the Amazon basin require softer water and a well-planted tank. In general cichlids do not make good community fish as they can get quite aggressive, especially when spawning - but a specialist cichlid tank is certainly a sight to behold, and can be very rewarding for the more experienced aquarist
