Guppies?

How much room is the min for a few male OR female ( i don't want babies yet) fancy guppies? i have a Small new tank ( i got at a garage sale with some gravel for a buck) that i really really want to put some guppies in, but its only a gallon and i don't have space for anything bigger :( why do i suspect that they need more room? i would have maybe 4 male fancy guppies and possibly a snail, but nothing more (other than plants and hiding places)

you should be able to do 2 in the tank you picked up. 4 would be pushing it

I really don't think you can put guppies in something that small but I relly don't know for sure.Maybe someone else can tell you for sure.

Ok thanks! ill look into getting 2. Any other advice on them?
i am going to keep a look out for some bigger tanks to set up this summer, and then possibly will be able to breed some... just for fun. or bettas... haven't decided...

but thanks!

i am going to Eugene monday and will probably return with either guppies or a delta tail betta, or both if my mom is feeling extra nice...

Lol thanks.
Since Surimi seems to be doing wonderfully, then if i "fall in love" with a delta tail betta i will definatly show up with one or both. But it depends if they have one i like

i would love to have a butterfly one or a blood red one but i do'nt think they will


eveywhere i look it says that the guppies need 1 gallon of water per fish and a filter, is that true? if so i am doomed

I'd like a red one like the one in Kim's avatar. I've never seen one that bright red in my petstores.
