Guppies are an easy fish to breed and if you’re interested in breeding them, an aquarium with plenty of floating plants and a breeding box is a must. Adult guppies may eat the fry if they’re left to fend for themselves, so it’s important to provide them with food and water in a safe and comfortable environment. Feed them brine shrimp, micro food and pulverized flakes, and you’re good to go!
