can i keep guppies with dannios?
Like the title says i am wondering if i can add some fancy male guppies + some females in the intention to try and breed to my existing tank that currently has 10 dannios ( about half and half leopard and zebras) i have a 36"x12"x18" tank with 6 live plants 3 sections of Pvc pipe and 2 mid sized pieces of bog wood.

would the dannio's nip?

using this chart ->
says they are compatible but the LFS guy said they wern't and there is conflicting information all over the net, so some input from you guys would be great

I had them without issues

joe1992w 05-19-2010 12:26 PM

can anybody else confirm this?

I had guppies and danios before didn't seem to bother each other but my guppies died after awhile(for other reasons)

joe1992w 05-19-2010 12:51 PM

so their deaths was completely unrelated? not due to stress caused by the hyper active dannios or anything?

I have Fancy guppies with a small group of White Cloud tetras without any issues. They are sort of like Danios and are very hardy tetras. I don't see why someone would tell you otherwise.

Anybody need any Fancy guppies? I live in San Diego. I'm trying to rehome 2 male Black Moscows + 2 females. I got an ad on craigslist San Diego under Pets section. (PU only) I need to rehome them soon. I have a Pregnate female due anyday now. I would ship them but do not have a heat pack only breather bags and a insulated cube box. PM me if anyone out their is interested in the San Diego area.

the danio I had(was two one died because it was old) was slow and to this day doesn't do much very fast. The female died of stress from the 2 males(newbie mistake) and the males died while I was gone and my mother was taking care of the tank(my other fish survived) this was 2 years ago so it is kindof blurry but ya hope this helps
