  1. Default Breeding guppies

    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?

    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.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    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.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    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?

    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.
