Hah, If you get another male, you'll have to get at least three more females. That's a LOTof babies!

Do not breed until you can guarantee a home for all the babies you'll produce. I don't think a 5 gallon will be big enough in the long run.

ive been reading and a 5 gallon is perfect for one pair and a couple babies. i have my guppies already. i just traded in my bettas and i have 4 guppies.there was a sale so i actually bought more lol. i have 2 males and 2 females.but that might change cause i might buy 2 more females once they get restocked which is thursday. i know its kinda small but it works great and its a good start.

Just remember the 1 inch of fish per gallon rule. You can only have 5, 1 inch long fish in that tank.

Itt's one of those things that's just because people do it, doesn't make it right. You know assemblies in school? Where there's 700 kids in the gym for an hour and a half? Imagine living like that. It's on that same scale. Or 35 kids in a small classroom. Can you say B.O.?
