Guppies and neon tetras?
 
Can guppies and neon tetras be kept together and how many would you keep in a 40l tank?

Guppie luver 02-19-2011 02:09 PM

well if you get like only male guppies then yes

Christople 02-21-2011 04:16 PM

there would be no aggression that I could see happening

fishbreeder 02-21-2011 05:21 PM

you can keep both male and female guppys and neons

Guppie luver 02-21-2011 05:25 PM

ya but you will become over run if you have male and female

Lupin 02-21-2011 06:08 PM

Hahaha!!! True.:rofl: Though the neons can eat the fry, the guppies will breed more than they can eat.

well depends on how many fish there are... if there are a few guppies and a couple neons the fry should get eaten

I don't count on anything eating fry anymore. I even had my big Gourami in with the fry and she wouldn't even do them in. Guppies are like Tribbles, they just keep multiplying. :roll:

If you don't want to chance your tank being over run with Guppy fry and you don't have a place to take the babies, stick with the males or... all females and hope they were not fertilized before you bought them. ha ha

yah be sure the females haven't been introduce to males or you could have fry for a few months
