That's what I had thought. I had meant that she could get more into a bigger tank. Only, because I heard they like to be in groups.

I have heard the "rule of thumb" is 1 inch per gallon of water. on a side note, one of my guppies just had 20 frys and counting...

That general rule applies for only certain fish or certain sizes of fish as we know that common goldies don't go into 20-30 gallon tanks ;) but that is a good idea to keep in mind for guppies, but i'd expand it to gallon-per-inch-plus-one-more for guppies because they are little poop machines themselves.
