The Blue Cobra Guppy is an exotic and attractive fish that any aquarist would be pleased to add to their collection. It is a hardy and fast-growing fish, making it ideal for both novice and experienced hobbyists. Its unique and striking patterns of dark blue body with orange and black spots covering its tail and dorsal fin make the Blue Cobra Guppy a beautiful addition to any tank. Additionally, the distinctive rosette pattern with vertical bars on its lower body is the key feature that makes the Blue Cobra Guppy stand out from other Fancy Guppies. This exquisite fish is sure to be the centerpiece of any aquarium.

The Blue Cobra Guppy is a resilient and hearty fish, perfect for beginner aquarists. It is also an ideal choice for more experienced hobbyists. To ensure its well-being, it should be housed in an aquarium of at least 10 gallons with other peaceful fish and the water parameters should be monitored regularly. This will help maintain the fish’s habitat and contribute to its overall health and longevity. With the right care, the Blue Cobra Guppy is sure to provide many years of enjoyment.

Guppies can be bred by the beginning aquarist with a little effort. If you are interested in breeding guppies, an aquarium with a covering of floating plants and a breeding box is ideal. Adults may eat the fry if left to fend for themselves, so a breeding box is essential. The fry should be fed brine shrimp, microfood, and pulverized flakes.
