Question How many guppies to a 10 gallon?

Hi guys, I have been thinking that I'd like to have some guppies in a 10 gallon NPT. I was wondering how many I could have in there? The tank would be exclusively for guppies.

Thanks!
Saphira

I don't know a lot about guppies, but I would say around 6 would be a good general amount. Sorry, Im not very good with advice since I am normally asking for advice, not giving it. Maybe someone more experienced with them could help you out?

That's something to think about. It would either be all male, or I would set up a separate tank for the fry.

If you're not going for all males or all females, make sure you have at least 2 females to every male.

A ratio I'm finding works awesome for me right now is one male and 4+ females. The girls aren't getting harassed too much, and it keeps my male busy. lol

@Skye
Niice, lol.

@Saphira
In my 10 I initially started out with 6 males then had to take one back because he kept harassing the other boys. Before that though, I had Honey, one oto and the six. If I didn't have Honey I could have had about... 10, at absolute max. 7-9 preferable I think.
