MuseumEdit

An information board in the aquarium will provide information about this fish.

"Guppies are tropical fish that are related to killifish and live in warm rivers. They are popular fish that have been bred to have beautiful flowing tail fins. Mother guppies give birth to their babies after the eggs hatch in their bellies. They give birth at a rate that's nearly constant, so their population tends to grow rather quickly."

In real lifeEdit

GuppyIRL
The Guppy, also known as the Millionfish, is one of the most popular freshwater aquarium fish species in the world. Guppies are native to Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Brazil, Guyana, the Netherlands Antilles, Trinidad and Tobago, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Venezuela. However, guppies have been introduced to many different countries on all continents, except Antarctica. Sometimes this occurred accidentally, but most often as a means of mosquito control. It was hoped that the guppies would eat the mosquito larvae, slowing the spread of malaria. In many cases, these guppies have had a negative impact on native fish faunas.

Young fry take roughly three or four months to reach maturity. In the aquarium, they are usually fed finely ground flake foods, baby brine shrimp or, unless they are put in a separate tank, uneaten food from the adults. In addition, they nibble on algae.

Guppies have been selectively bred to produce a variety of colors and patterns. In the wild, male guppies are dull black or brown in colour, with some coloured spots, while females are fully dull grey. The wild guppies that showed the most colours in each generation were bred to produce the “fancy guppies" seen in pet stores and guppy shows today.
