aweee sorry :( do guppys need bubbles coming from the gravel or something cause mayb thats why they r dying? i lost 5 thats to big a number for something. maybe when i bought them the tank was contaminated and they got sick. the babies would have died to right?

YOU NEED AN AIR PUMP...they put oxygen in to the water and with out it the oxygen levels in your tank will be very low...this could be the reason they are dying...:):):)

You would need a filter that has a "waterfall" action. It's always a good idea to have an airpump too just incase. Plus bubble are pretty.

I think that your water conditions plus the lack of oxygen is what killed your fish. I highly reccomend investing in a API liquid kit.
