Comments: One of the most popular aquarium fishes of all times. A good beginners fish. Easy to keep and spawn. Guppies come in many varieties and grades of quality from feeder fish to $100.00 (or more) a pair show fish. A lot of Guppy ills can be cured with the addition of 2 teaspoons of salt per gallon of water. Guppies do best in a tank of their own.
