Guppies

fishHave you ever eaten a guppy before? In this writing I’m going to tell you about some interesting facts about guppies.

Guppies live three to four weeks without food. They have small tummies and can only consume a little bit of food at a time. Guppies have to be fed once or twice a day.  You should never over feed your guppy.

Guppies were first found in 1866 in South America by Robert John Lechmere.

Guppies get nervous and stressed out without a hiding spot so they will feel better with a hiding spot. They are very social fish and they should not be kept alone. Guppies try to chase other fish and play with them.

Guppies have fairly warm temperatures. Keep their water temperatures between [23-24’C.] or [82-84’F].

If you want a guppy, go to your local pet shop. They sell a lot of equipment and supplies for guppies.
