Yay,Got my guppies :-)

I have wanted fancy guppies since I started this hobby at the beginning of the year but my tank was always at its limit, if not overstocked. Sadly, as some of you may already know my females and tetras were brutally murdered lately and as sad I was I decided to get some guppies to keep my last remaining girl company.

So today I managed to pick up 4, which isn't ideal as there were 3 males and 1 female but I will be getting more soon, I am in love with them already, their like miniature betta's haha and seem to love Tinie, following her around like she's their mother lol. I'm only worried about the breeding they do but thats always betta food right

Anyway, thought I would express my excitement to y'all

Aw, I love guppies! If you have a female, you'll have more in NO time. Make sure to pick up a couple more females or that single girl will get harassed. Congrats! They're really fun fish. I used to keep them a LONG time ago.

It's really ideal to keep livebears one male and two females. So When you go buy more instead of one. BEWARE of the BREEDING. You might want to pick a breeder trap aswell.

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)

You need atleast 2 females pure male guppy...This will keep the harassing at minimum level.. So you will need to fix that...And how big is your tank?

They are lovely fish although, I've seperated the males from the females since I dont want the added headache of finding homes for them
