I do have 4x2 aquarium & few motors (engines). Don't know what to put. Thinking about fish which doesn't need motor (save cost ). Any? How many ppl will be there for the gathering? Any guppies for adoption?

Setuju. guppy mmg senang nk bela. Dulu, My mum slalu bising kat my dad sebab suke sgat tanam tumbuhan air (air yg bertakung), dia cakap nnt bnyak jentik2. Then i pun beli la 3 guppies (2f 1m) and letak dlam bekas tu. Tak smpai 2 mgu, dah bnyak anak2 ikan dlam bekas tu.

So sekarang, kt belakang kawasan my house dah banyak dengan guppy. Asal ada bekas yg bertakung air, mesti ada guppy. Secara tak langsung, my dad dah jadi Backyard Breeder!

Hi Cik Lola,
me myself tak penah la bela guppy.. my mum yg selalu bela.. apa yg my mum buat, dia just lepaskan all the guppies dlm pasu tempayan, letak pokok kiambang kt atas..sure ok..
my mum said, guppy memang susah sikit nk hidup dlm akuarium cantik2.. and guppy perlu pokok yg terapung di permukaan..

Cik Lola,

Sebab2 guppies tu mati taktau la plak sebab i bukan vet. . Tp based on my experience, sebab2nya mungkin berpunca dari tahap klorin dlam air tu. Apa yg biasa i buat ialah isi air dalam bekas yang nak letak guppy tu, then biarkan semalaman, then baru masukkan ikan tu. Kalau guna air ujan lagi elok kot.

Atupun mungkin time u beli ikan tu, u terus masukkan dalam aquarium. Sepatutnya, biarkan ikan dlam plastic asal, then letakkan plastic tu dalam bekas air tu. Ni bertujuan untuk menyamakan suhu air dalam plastic and dlam bekas tu, takut ikan tu terkejut dengan perubahan suhu, lalu mati dengan jayanya.

Pasal anak ikan tu, mgkin takde temat bermain/bersembunyi kot. Klu boleh, letakkan batu2 yang boleh berlumut and biarkan keadaan bekas tu sedikit berlumut coz anank2 guppy ni kadang2 suka meratah lumut, mgkin sebab time tu diorang belum boleh makan makanan ikan sebab size mulut.

Cadangan pokok kiambang tu mmg bagus! . Tp untuk kes yg bela guppy dalam bekas kat luar rumah la. Kiambang bertindak sebagai tempat sembunyi/main dan juga dapat menyejukkan suhu bekas tu.

To be honest, guppy can live quite long (up to 20 months) if proper cares are being given.

First of all, you need to cycle the tank water first if it is a new set up.
Let the water runs for a week before releasing any fish into the tank.
The purpose of doing so is to remove all unwanted and toxic chemicals that may be found in the water.
The water is colourless and odourless, Nitrate (NO2) and Nitrite(NO3) can be very toxic to the guppy. Guppy wont die immediately , but gradually they will lose their appetite and internal organs will be harmed and eventually die.

Secondly, when guppy are purchased and brought back to home.
One has to acclimatise the water parameters inside the bags to be as close as the water parameters inside the tank.
This is to prevent pH shock and temperature different.
Many people will just open the bag and pour the fish into the aquarium, this is the wrong way of introducing the new fish into your tank.

The fish will suffer from pH shock as a slight different of pH can cause a big impact to the fish.
Furthermore, the bacteria inside the water might also go into your tank together with the fish.

The correct way is to pour the newly bought fish into a small container, use a silicon tube to siphon out the water from the tank, buy a dropper so that u can control the water to be siphon out to be one drop per second.
Slowly acclimatise the water for at least one hour before using a net to scoop the fish and release into your tank

3rd is feeding method. Do not overfed the guppy. Feed only dried food and not live food( worms) accept brine shrimps(this is the major source of protein especially to new born guppies).

4th, change the water regularly, at least twice a week, 25% every time.
Clean the filter media also every 6 months if you are using a canister filter .

Guppy is not a hard fish to take care! lets learn together and enjoy the fun of breeding guppy.

Please enjoy some pictures of my pure strain guppies:

Hi lola, its better not to add salt. Dont let the guppy to be dependant on the salt. Unless they are sick and need to be quarantined.
Salt does not neutralise the pH, it can increase the pH.
Wish you success in guppy keeping
