Solution for an all male guppy tank?


Recommended Posts

My neighbor has 4 guppies in a 10 gallon with an OTO and 3 ghost shrimp. One of her guppies was attacked before, and is now back in her tank swimming around peacefully with others. My question is, will having an all male guppy tank be ok, or should she get females? If she needs to get females, is there a predator fish who can eat the fry? We were going to see if she could trade them to our LFS for something, but we don't know if they will. What are some recommendations?

theres usually not a problem with all male guppies, with there flowing tails its likly to attract any fish to the fins and have nips taken.

tell her to add some extra plant coverage and hiding places so he can get away if need be.

OR if she would like a few females but no babies, just tell ehr to take out ALL plant coverage, the females will eat the fry as quickly as they can drop them. and if by some strange chance a few survives rarely will a apet store turn down a guppy
