Huh, I guess they are considered tropical but tolerate more temperature. They may be less hardy in colder water- this website says they breed less in cool water.

Thanks guys. I was thinking of getting males but I know about aggression problems. If I put 2 males in a 5 gallon with 2 plecos... would that be okay?

common plecos get to be over 2 feet long and need a big tank. I don't agree with using 5g's unless out of necessity. Just get the 10g, and you can have more guppies that are happier! :D

Oh well, I was hoping I wouldn't have too because I don't really have the space but I guess I'll have to make the space for a 10g. LOL.

I had 3 males in a 5 gal..I couldn't keep up with the maintence so I returned them to the petstore. When I tore the tank down, there was so much poop in the gravel I almost heaved, and I did weekly siphons!! >_>
So, yeah, get a 10 gal and SIPHON A LOT.

Sometimes we have to realize that if we can't find space for a suitable size tank, we shouldn't get the fish lol I want cichlids SO SO BAD but I don't have room for a 55g tank (and I can't find one). Doesn't means I'll shove them all in a 29g tank and call it a day lol I just don't get them. Good for you to decide to get the 10g anyways, so you can have your fish :)

Haha, yeah. It was my first tank before I REALLY got into fish, so I listened to the petstore guy and that happened xP

hi there ive got a 10 gal tank with 6 males and they get along fine, at first there was a little bit of arguing but they seem to have established an order for themselves now, i have noticed in my local [et store almost all the females are pregnant and you dont want that in a small tank. i keep my guppies in a 10 gal tank with filter, light and live plants at 24 centigrade and they seem to do better at a lower temperature, the fish profiles on here are very good and well worth a look

I keep my 10g at 75F and my little one at 78F (Only cause the little tank's heater is pre-set. :[ ). I love their little personalities. :3
