Just having a good nose through all the threads and this was popped out as I love guppies. Yours are beauties love the colours! I owned male and females and of course this resulted in lots of fry but I remember panicking that my tank would be overrun...I was told to let nature do it’s thing as all would not survive but I rehomed all 60 or so of them.

I definitely would like guppies again but is it cruel to just have males? Or, let’s say I had 1:2 again and had fry how could I manage? Is it true that not all would survive and longer term could there be serious issues. I don’t plan on getting a second time (only hospital tank).

Thanks Plankton.

I've just let them balance themselves out. There's normally about 60-70 in the tank at any one time with 30 or so panda corys and a bristlenose. It is a 2'6" tank now as the old 2' gave up.
You can keep males on their own though, get 10+ though as they will harass each other with less.
If at first you don't succeed....
...get someone else to do it! :D

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!

Mobiles are way too complicated for me, although I do have one now. ;)

Thank you! Really good to know that and definitely makes me feel less anxious about it.

I'm working on it, but there's something funny going on here: 'guest' posting ; and I can't follow the usual path to purge the blighter out of existence!
