Default Guppies

I love rearing Guppies but unfortunately my Guppies never last long. I don't know why I can't keep Guppies. They always seem to die in my hands My father bought a few and now they have great great great grandchildren. Mine all died

Anyone knows how to keep Guppies? I don't know what am I doing wrong Now.. I have stopped as I don't want to be a Guppy killer

ikan guppy nie sebenarnyer paling senang nak bela..x susah pun...tapi klu akak nak bela saje2 balang kecik pun da ok tp klu nak biakkan, cari balng yang saiz besar....xpayah oksigen...klu ade pun bg dier cergas ckit....klu akak nak rearing, biarlah akak letak nisbah 1:3...sekor jantan 3 betina...ikan nie time kecik x lawa sangat tp ble da besar, mmg smart..nak2 klu bela dalm akuarium besar...ikan nie klu air klorin lebih dier kureng ckit..n klu akak ade persoalan ttg ikan, akak tanyer jer...kita same2 belajar..

Heheheh, I used to have loads and loads of guppies.... they simply just breed and the numbers multiplied, it was back in my Kampung then, I don't know what I did "right" but I remember having those water plants to cool the aquarium and provide O2...

Yes, Sillylupie, it seems I am a guppy killer. They seem to die on me I never seem to be able to keep them for long. I don't know why. I know that they are easy to keep and rear but ....... mine keep dying hu..hu....

Yes, Vivienlpl, I know what you mean. Me too stop buying cause don't want the guppies to end up dead. At least yours survive for 6 months. Mine only survive for a week or 2 weeks...

That's the small ones. When I was back in KK, there is shop selling 4 inches guppies costing RM4.50 for male and RM5.00 for females. I blew hundreds of ringgit buying them and they keep dying. They are really big you know. But I can't seem to find those guppies here.

Yes, seriously there is such a big guppy. When I asked the shop owner he said that it is imported from Thailand and Singapore. They are really huge and so beautiful as their tails are so big like a fan. Unfortunately, can't find the same type here.

Default Re: Guppies

Guppy enthusiasts, I want to ask a question that could probably be a stupid question

but will ask anyway...hehe
ok, if my cats drink from the guppy tank (ok lah more like, guppy jar..) will their saliva contaminate the water and eventually murder the guppies???

of course lah I didn't ask or allow the cats to go drink water frm there but my cats are a bit absent minded I swear some of them don't even NOTICE that there are guppies inside. They're just lalalala oh water! I think I'm thirsty...so they drink drink drink.

Thing is that I've had one jar with four teenage guppies mati at one go and they were fine prior to dying so I knew they were not ill. I can't think of anything that mightve gotten into the jar other than maybe gecko urine or my cats' saliva. Then only a couple of days ago the same thing happened to my other jar of tiny guppy fries. Only one survived. The smallest of them all. It is now the lone guppy...

Default Re: Guppies

since you did not elaborate further, there are so many causes that could kill your fish. mostly those are related to water condition so it's best that you check for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate using test kits.
