Housed in a healthy aquarium, guppies usually reach maturity in less than six months.

Guppies are a tropical species that need good water quality and a temperature around 78 degrees Fahrenheit (26 C).

The aquarium in the picture appears to be very small, so you will want to limit its population. A trio (two females and a male) of guppies will soon have the tank swarming with aquatic life and you looking for more aquariums. Generally speaking, it's better to buy larger aquariums, because they are easier to maintain in a healthy condition.

In my opinion the four most common aquarium mistakes are over feeding, overcrowding, lack of a nitrogen cycle and not considering compatibility issues.

Please let's keep it polite and respectful. Old questions and answers are still posted, because they still have useful information.
