Guppies are a small fish, who will not get much larger then 1 to 3 inches
in length. They can live in a wide variety of water temperatures and
conditions. Because of this guppies make good community fish and will
live happily with most other fish.
Guppies are also called 'millions fish' because of the rate at which they
breed. Show guppies can cost as much as $30 or more, but feeder guppies
can be bought at pet shops 12 for $1.
Because of their size and ease to take care of, guppies are a great
starter fish for your first community tank or for your children.
