    There are plenty of theories on what makes them grow faster, including higher temps (near 78 or 80 degrees), faster water movement, varied diet with plenty of proteins and well oxygenated tanks.

    I have heard that this does make them grow faster. I've also heard that this can increase their metabolism to the point that it can reduce their overall life expectancy. I have no idea if either claim is true, just passing it along.

    i looked into that stuff but what i really think would look nice is a bunch of dwarf hairgrass on the bottom with one either small amazon sword or some sort of small anubias palnt

    would that be ok? and stingray it sounds really cruel but i dont really care about their overall life expectancy just cuz i am selling them locally at a low price and people have been buying in bulk for food for their other pets so they will get fed either way but thanks for telling me that cuz i would need to take that into consideration when im breeding them for myself

    Your goal is to sell guppies, so why worry about them growing fast?

    I would simply keep the water around 75-76 degrees, well filtered with plenty of plants and allow them to grow at whatever rate they do. Cull any that aren't showing the type of color or shape that I wanted, and find out what people pay the most for and breed to meet that desire.

    well you see i want to breed the adults to get some fry then turn around and grow them up to sell so growing them up fast would be better than slow

    Are you wanting to grow "store" type guppies or "show" guppies?

    Store guppies are those meant to be sold, generally not top-quality. Show guppies are entered in contests. They are raised differently because store guppies are grown for size and quantity, whereas show guppies are raised for color, size, and fins.
