Males of the bred species can reach 1.5 inches, and females typically grow to about 2.5 inches. One of the most popular aquarium fish, the guppy is a live-bearer, meaning it does not lay eggs but produces live offspring. Although the wild form is occasionally seen in stores, most are selectively bred forms chosen for their color pattern or finnage.
Living Environment : Unlike the hardy wild specimens, aquarium strains are sensitive to water quality. All flake and freeze-dried foods are eaten by guppies, but live brine shrimp should also be offered regularly.
