Reproduction: Guppies are a livebearer, the females giving birth to fully formed fry. Males will mate with several females: from one mating females give birth to multiple batches of fry. Gestation period is around 28 days at 26-27°C, longer at cooler temperatures. Very easy to breed.
Feeding: Omnivorous. Eats most smaller sized aquarium foods. Additional Comments: Endler’s Guppy has become very popular, particularly for nano tanks. The males are very attractive with their luminescent colours. Previously considered a variety of Guppy, it is now considered a separate species.
Males only grow to around half the size of the females which can grow to 4-4.5cm. A number of colour varieties have been created by breeders, some the result of hybridising with Guppies. Ideal fish for Nano tanks.
