Not really sure what to say but I suggest you keep a 1:2 ratio. Two females to each male.

Occupied Tanks;
1 ten gallon tank
1 five gallon tank


empty;
a few jars

LOL! It wont take long before these guppies overpopulate your tank. A well.planted tank + guppies = population boom I can stil remember my planted tanks so crowded with guppies since the fry were adept at hiding and able to grow enough to escape cannibalism.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
