Baby Guppy (?)

This little guy surprised me in my plants :) I think he's a guppy. He is very lively and loves chasing the bubbles from his air stone.

I got them from Petsmart. They keep some fish in their plant tanks.

Well, it definitely looks like a guppy to me.

If you plan on keeping him/her, you might want to look into getting some more guppies when he/she's a bit bigger.

Guppies like to school.

Thank you :) I know nothing about guppies. How many guppies should be in a school? What size tank do they like?

That 3.5 gallon will be fine if you keep it to around 3 adults. Make sure the ratio stays at 1 male per 2 females. A male can easily tire a lone female out and kill her from exhaustion.

Please note that they are PROLIFIC breeders, but will readily eat their fry so the numbers can be kept down in a small tank. Just know that you'll probably end up with a fully stocked 3.5 gallon after this is all said and done. If you want less guppies, just don't invest in much fry cover.

For diet, I just fed my guppies Tetra Color Tropical Flakes. I also got some powdered Veggie Mix off of Aquabid.

I used to breed guppies a while ago, so this is all from personal experience! ^_^

If i get a 10 gallon tank, how many guppies can I have in it? Also, Can I keep a tank with just one gender? I have no desire to raise any other fry and I do not support cannibalism :P what temp should they be at? How many can I keep in a 5 gallon? Also, it is not filtered, is this ok?
