Guppies are probably one of the most popular aquarium fish, known for their bright colours which really helps them to stand out! A great choice of freshwater aquarium beginners, the guppy is a very hardy tropical fish which is easy to care for. The male guppy is colourful, with a large tail, whilst the females are larger in the body with less colour and a smaller tail. The guppy is a prolific breeder, so if you do not wish to breed your guppies, we recommend you stick to either all males or all females! They will happily accept most fish foods, from flakes to frozen and dried foods.
