i had all female livebearers. i was planning to add in some males too. but before i got round to that and months of fry from every single female, i was like argh cant keep all these, and ran out of people who were going to buy / take them from me. so decided no dont want them anymore. sold them and now want to re stock with male guppys being the majority.

i love the variations you get of them. theyre brilliant brilliant. and what i like about them in numbers is the overall effect of how their tails move so rapidly. so excited to get a little money together and begin the stocking

No I live in England. Guppys near me range from 1.25 to about 3. Fantastic how cheap they are, but I guess its cause they are so easily bred

Going back to your initial post; no mention is made of your water parameters, and this will have a bearing on what fish will work. From those in your list, basic medium hard water is suitable for all but the rummynose that will not last in hard basic water. Some other tetra would be better, as there are a few that can manage in basic water. The rummynose tetra is not one of them (most are now the Brilliant Rummynose, Hemigrammus bleheri), nor is the cardinal tetra.

On the other hand, if you have soft slightly acidic water, the livebearers would not do well as they need basic harder water. The Scarlet Badis can manage in acidic to basic.

These fish are in our profiles with info on water preferences, numbers, compatibility, etc. Second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the screen, or click on the shaded name in posts.
