That would be nice :) My water can have a high pH, do they adjust well to water conditions?

Guppies are very accommodating to different water types,

My ph is rather high and they do excellent, I also have tanks with low Ph and they do just as good, Not to worry.

Always in NEED & looking for more Tanks!

Not giving up on a 55 gallon, just postponing. I want to experiment with substrate planting my 10 and 15 gallons. If that works out, I might try it with a 55 gallon.

I thought it was too much to hope for :) I didn't think such a pretty, cute little fish could be accommodating too!

If the Ph in the guppies tank you purchased from has a big difference then your PH it is always a good idea to slowly adjust them, Otherwise they could die from shock , Most store bought fish arn't as strong as locally raised fish.

But they will adjust just fine if given a little time.
