Similar to other Fancy Guppies, the Assorted Guppy Females do best in an established aquarium of at least 10 gallons. Though tolerant of small changes, care should be taken to maintain stable water parameters. Hardy plant varieties such as Java Fern and Java Moss are excellent choices for creating a lush, planted aquarium housing the Assorted Female Guppy.
Though best displayed in a biotope or colony aquarium, the Assorted Guppy Females is a very peaceful fish that does well in freshwater community aquariums housing tankmates of similar temperament. The Assorted Female Guppy is an omnivore and requires both algae-based foods as well as meaty foods.
An algae-based flake food, along with freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and brine shrimp will provide guppies with the proper nutrition
In addition to feeding a varied diet, it’s important to provide appropriate water conditions for Assorted Guppy Females. The ideal temperature range is between 72-82°F (22-28°C) and the pH should be in the range of 7.0-8.2. They also require a moderate level of water hardness, between 10-30 dGH.
Regular water changes of around 25% of the tank volume every two weeks will help maintain good water quality. It’s also important to ensure that the filtration system is adequate for the size of the tank and stocked fish.
The Assorted Female Guppy is a livebearing fish, meaning that they give birth to live young rather than laying eggs. They can breed quite easily in the aquarium, so if you’re not looking to breed them, it’s recommended to keep only females or to keep a ratio of one male to several females.
Overall, the Assorted Female Guppy is a colorful and peaceful fish that can make a great addition to a community aquarium. With the right care and maintenance, they can thrive and provide endless enjoyment for their owners.
