Guppies are a very popular freshwater aquarium fish species. Also known as million fish and rainbow fish, this species is native to North-East South America. They have now been introduced to many habitats around the world and are widely popular in domestic aquariums. This may be due to the fact that they are a highly adaptable species and feed on a variety of food sources, making them very easy to care for.
What to Feed Guppies
How to Set-Up Your Tank for a Guppy
If you want to set-up a self-sufficient tank for your Guppies, you can do so, using the products we have at Aquatic Live Food. The best option if you have a refugium is the Freshwater Refugium Packs. These packs contain everything you need to set-up a self-sufficient tank for your guppies and any other freshwater fish you may have. Or, if you prefer to simply have a range of food sources in your tank for them, you can simply add any of the freshwater plankton we have available.
Adding freshwater phytoplankton (or alga) can also be beneficial. MicroMagic Freshwater Mix is perfect for this as it contains 4 species of freshwater phytoplankton. The guppies will feed off any benthic alga and it will also create a great environment for any of the plankton living in the tank. If the copepods and other plankton have a great food source from the algae, then they will in turn, be more nutritious for the guppies!
