I am debating breeding guppies in my 10 gallon tank which currently has 3 male platies (I figure I have room for 1 male 2 female or 1 male 3 female guppies) and have a few questions:
1) Would the male platies bully the female guppies to mate?
2) Would I need a seperate tank to put the fry in?
3) How many fry do guppies give birth to?
4) Where do you sell/give them away to?
I'll ask my mom to call a couple LFS later, but I really only have Petco, PetChoice, etc. Can you put them online on Craigslist (the guy at Petco recommended it) or something. I wouldn't really want to ship them yet.
5) How quickly do people buy them? What happens if I have (I guess you can say) "leftovers"?
Thanks for the answers! If the platies would bully the guppies, then I guess I can't breed the guppies anyway:-(.
maybe if you had a guppy only tank it would yield more babies and you know who's the dad lol
in a 10 gallon tank I find the high activity of Guppies tends to over rule the Platies,
And the platies usually become less active and slink more to the sides or hide,
For this reason I had to stop housing my guppies and platies together for even short periods,
as it seemed to affect the platies health,
plate and sword tail are guppy killers i lost 46 guppys to a plate. each one had been pecked to death and one was half eaten.
