Fancy Guppy Pair Purple Cobra

Description

The Fancy Guppy, also known as Poecilia reticulata, is a popular and colorful freshwater aquarium fish. The Purple Cobra Guppy is a specific color variety bred for its striking appearance.

  1. Temperature: Guppies thrive in a temperature range of 72-82°F (22-28°C). They can tolerate slight fluctuations but maintaining a stable temperature is beneficial.

  2. Minimum Size Tank: A 10-gallon tank is generally considered suitable for a pair or a small group of guppies. However, larger tanks are always better as they provide more swimming space and stability.

Feeding Habits: Guppies are omnivores and have a varied diet. They eat a combination of flake food, live or frozen foods like brine shrimp, daphnia, and bloodworms. Providing a balanced diet ensures their health and enhances their colors. 

Habitat Preference: Guppies are adaptable and can thrive in a variety of environments. They prefer a well-planted tank with places to hide. Adding floating plants can provide cover for fry (baby guppies).

Water pH Level: Guppies prefer slightly alkaline water with a pH range of 6.8 to 7.8. Regular water testing is recommended to ensure optimal conditions.

Behavior: Guppies are known for their active and social behavior. They are peaceful and can coexist with other community fish. However, male guppies can sometimes display aggression towards each other, so it's advisable to keep more females than males.

Guppies are social fish and thrive in groups. While they are not strict schooling fish, they do better when kept in groups of at least three to four individuals. This helps reduce stress and promotes natural behavior.

Color: The Purple Cobra Guppy is known for its vibrant and distinctive purple coloration, which can vary in intensity and pattern. Male guppies, in particular, exhibit a wide range of colors and patterns to attract females.

Other Details: Guppies are livebearers, meaning they give birth to live fry instead of laying eggs. They are prolific breeders, and if you have both males and females, you can expect them to reproduce unless specific steps are taken to control breeding.

Remember to monitor water quality, provide a well-balanced diet, and maintain proper tank conditions to ensure the health and longevity of your Fancy Guppy pair, especially the Purple Cobra variety. Regular water changes and a properly cycled tank are essential for their well-being.
