New Guppy Tank

Just started a new Guppy tank in a 16 gal Aqueon BowFront. I have 3 males and 3 females in there so far. Any suggestions?

I totally agree with Tanker very nice guppies.. The only advice I can give you is you may want to buy and additional 2 to 3 females so that the males dont drive your original 3 females crazy with the mating chase. and tire them out. The usual ratio is 1 male guppy to 2 female guppies.

Very pretty little fish. I recently became a mom to 6 Guppies as well. I have no idea which are girl or boys or if I even have both. You have some pretty colors.

Yeah, I was planning on putting more females in there. I was wondering if i should put other species in there as i am hoping to get them to breed. I would like to have them breed without a box but dont know. I was told to put some artificial plants at top-level for the fry to hide but dont know how much protection that will offer. Especially with other species.

And its very easy to tell males from females. Just look up "sexing guppies" on google.
