Ah, guppy love.

I went to a big new fish store yesterday and they have a wonderful variety of guppies avaliable. I've always ignored them, because at my usual pet store they're really small and sad looking, but these ones were really pretty.

I love the Green Cobra variation! OH, If only I had the room and my gourami wouldn't eat them...

gouramis eat guppies? Good thing I moved my guppies to their own tank and only have platys in with the oto. Your lucky, my LFS has only mostly leopard guppies.

No, they are WAY happier in a community tank where they can bother a variety of fish. They're very territorial.

Fryup:

I have a dwarf gourami and have always been reccomended not to keep them with adult guppies incase they're just too tempting a hors d'ouvres.
