  1. Default Breeding guppies


    0 Not allowed!
    I have been breeding guppies for 2 months. Some of the females are colorless. I do not want those genes in the gene pool. I do not want to just kill them, but I do not want them either, what should I do with them?

    Pressurized CO2(1 bps)
    Black flourite sand (60 lbs)
    I have 8 adult guppies, and an insane amount of babies

    Off the top of my head...
    Set up another tank just for them, make it a big one because there will be plenty of fish to put in there.
    Find someone who wants them.
    Get some fish that will eat them.
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    I will have to talk to my LFS about that, if they do then that would solve my problem.

    In my females, the tail patterns or colouring doesn't come through until they're a bit older. I have one female who was colourless until about 4 months of age and now has a blue patterned tail and a yellow top fin which is quite special. I was reading that the speed of colouring up can be related to all sorts - genetics, temperature, feed, etc! Just to say - don't write them off too quickly! What colours are you aiming for?
    55g planted: 10x adult guppies, 9x kuhli loaches, 7x black neons, 2x neons, 6x Amano shrimp, assassin snails & cherry shrimp

    10g planted: Occasional platies & black devil trumpet snail

    That is great news! They are around 1 month old so I will just be patient with it.

    I agree, it takes my girls months to fully color up. They are very pale and plain the first 3 to 4 months.

    You could set up another tank and call them pets!

    Most female guppies are colorless. Some do have a little color sometimes. You could take them to your local pet store and trade them in.

    Huh? I've found it is harder to get a plain adult than it is ones with color.
