    It depends on how many fish you are going to add and what risks you are willing to put on your fish. I wouldn't suggest it. If you have the test kit you can do a water change before the ammonia gets to critical levels (which isn't very high). If you don't have it you will only know there is an issue when fish start to die.

    Also, breeding fish is very fun and rewarding, but I would be weary about breeding in 1 10g tank. Just so you know where I'm coming from, I just read a post on Reddit where someone euthinised over 100 guppies in their friends 10g tank because they breed so out of control. He said you couldn't see the other side of the tank because it was so full of fish.

    Guppies are also hard to get rid of because of how easy they are to breed. If you really want to breed them, I'd start off with 1 male and 2 females. At least you would give your tank some wiggle room, and a slower start.

    I think I'll wait till the kit comes before getting any. And I know they breed like crazy, but even though the adults are being kept in a 10-gallon, I have some other unused tanks that could be employed. So I am starting off with one male and maybe three females, and that should do well. Thank you so much!
    It's better to have and not need then to need and not have; this is especially true when you're dealing with fish and you need itch medication.

    You'll find it easier to rehome guppies if you breed selectively. Meaning you breed a certain line of guppies instead of a heinz 57 mix mash. I have tequila sunrise, I wouldn't add any of another morph, or keep them separate.
