Hmm taking into account what has been said I think all points might be valid.
The place I got my guppies...well, they aren't the most 'modern' of shops, a lot of their tanks are over stocked etc with not the best cleaning or filtration. but they have a lot of variety of fish. I can see some guppies in the tanks with tails already ragged and split. I usually try and avoid getting them, but some of so cute and pretty I get them and think I can heal them :/
I do try and pick the prettiest and nicest males, so maybe it is breeding issue and poor immunity :/
my tank is quite full, I admit, but I have been careful not to overstock, and I am have a strict cleaning and water change routine.
One thing I have noticed is the guppies with the bigger tails seem to suffer either quicker, or more than my smaller tailed guppies. at this time I have put the worse off guppies in an isolation net, and am treating the water with medicine. I have isolated them at the moment mostly because my endlers are getting quite cheeky, I don't want them having a good at my guppies while they're still abit weak.
