Colour of fish may vary.

The Guppy is one of the most well-known and popular aquarium fish for both beginners and seasoned aquarists alike.

They add plenty of colour to tanks, are peaceful, relatively cheap and very easy to maintain.

Depending on conditions and genetics, female guppies can grow up to 3-4cm, while male guppies to 3.5cm. They reach full-size maturity in about six months.

They do not produce much bio-load, so they do not need much space to live. However to keep them healthy you need offer them a minimum amount of space.

In the aquarium hobby there is a very common method of calculating how many fish you can keep in an aquarium: 2.5cm fish / 4L of water.

If you follow the above rule, in a 20L aquarium you can keep up to 3-4 guppies
