Guppies


Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

Got 15-18 tiny fry guppies in December. First time keeping guppies. They're grown up now and I have too many males and their numbers are increasing. The boys sometimes fight etc. If you have a good home for them please let me know. I'm in Atlanta but I have shipped fish before and can if absolutely necessary. I have like 4 extra males at least.

They're mixed breed but the boys are lovely with big colorful tails. I haven't posted here in a while but figured to post this just in case. Thanks!

If you can wait till mid to late May, I'll take them!

But if you can rehome them before that, then please do so. 

I think you already know that I'm in GA.  :)

I gave these away today - but I have more to give away. I'm also giving away fry as well. I will likely still have some come May.

lol That is a lot of guppies. They just love to keep breeding. Your tank reminds me of TD's tank when we had it going years ago, till I killed everyone. :yikes

I really like all those plants in there. :)

@spider man

I did not even know she had Guppies. I have not spoken to her in a very long time. I got these off eBay as tiny fry and they bred out of control!! It's nice to see you here tho. I lost any way of contact with you since GFK no longer runs.

If they keep this up - I may boot all of them and try a different species because omg

how are your goldfish and ponds these days, do you know what happened at goldfish keepers, it feels good to be here, much friendlier vibe

The GFK site wasn't really getting many posts so I guess the ADMIN let it go or closed it. Sucks all the useful info there was lost. Forums are just dying. It is what it is.

As for my fish - I have one system left. The goldfish I have left are Diva, Boss, Rangli, Elizabeth, Piccolo, Limbo, and lovely Bayana... my last little white Ryukin. There are 4 baby single tails from a spawn left too. I won't be running any other systems. Don't have the time or patience. And after these go, I'll likely set goldfish aside for a while.

Given tons away. All adult males sans one gone. Most babies gone. Levels are respectable now. Will update if that changes.

I spoke with Fred, GFK’s creator and operator this morning regarding GFK and he informed me that he was closing the group because the majority of the members moved over to the Facebook groups which have much more content 

I personally took a hiatus from GFK due to the lack of knowledgeable members that remained and the few members who would criticize everything and argue so much that it just wasn’t worth my time

Right. That is what I had assumed. The ADMIN closed the forum due to lack of members/posts.

Facebook is not for me, but neither is a toxic forum full of older people who think they know everything JUST because they are older. It set me off time and time again to see the clique-ish mentality of many of the older members run new members off instantly by being rude and abrasive instead of helpful. 

Closing your mind to new concepts and ways of doing things was not for me. I stopped posting due to that type of mentality where differing opinions and ways of doing things were not welcomed IMO.
