TD's Planted tank

Recommended Posts

WOW I bet the just love the plants. Do you have more babies survive with the plants then you did without?

More babies survive with the plants, than with out them. If you place plants at the bottom and then let some float, more babies will survive. Most fry will go to the top plants :thumb:

That was awesome! How big is that tank? What plants? Its very lush, thank you for sharing!

Forgot to say maybe you should put some aquarium salt. Guppies can handle salt plus i think you need it as some of the guppies seem to have wounded tails and the salt help heal their tails. 2 tea spoons of aquarium salt will do. I use to have guppies but had to give them away as the gave birth to 20-30 babies every month each of the females.

Do the guppies just start breeding on their own? How long does it take?

Some of them are 15 years old! That's crazy! Did they multiply quickly? This makes me interested in getting a guppy tank.

This family of guppies are 15 years old. Average life span in there is about 2 years old some times less.

Guppy tanks are awesome :thumb:
