Half Black Leopard Guppy
The guppy is a true classic in any aquarium, and many hobby aquarists often start out with guppies because of how easy they are to care for, and how easy they are to breed. The Half-Black Leopard Guppy isn’t any different in this perspective, and its unique appearance makes it a real sight to see.
For whom is the Half-Black Leopard Guppy suited?
Like most other guppies, the Half-Black Leopard Guppy is easy to care for and is entirely suitable for beginner aquarists. Especially if you’d like to give breeding a try, the guppy is the perfect fish, and having an aquarium filled with little Leopard Guppies will certainly create a unique aesthetic.
What are they like?
The Half-Black Leopard Guppy is a very social fish and can easily co-exist with a large variety of other fish, invertebrates and aquarium snails. As mentioned before, these fish love to procreate, and so if you don’t want to have an aquarium filled with these beautiful little fish, we suggest either introducing a natural predator to keep the population in check, or to only hold male guppies.
The ideal conditions for the Half-Black Leopard Guppy
While the Half-Black Leopard Guppies are easy to care for and don’t require any special care, dark soil and dense planting are recommended to promote coloration, and if you want to breed the guppies, floating plants are recommended for protection of the fry. Other than that, the Half-Black Leopard Guppy prefers a water temperature of 72 – 82 degrees Fahrenheit with a neutral pH and medium to hard water.
What we feed Guppies
We feed our fish a mix of frozen, live and prepared foods including live baby brine and black worms. We also supplement their diet with a mix of Northfin Veggie, Community and Bug Pro.
