Anyone who has decided to decorate their home with an aquarium will receive advice from an experienced aquarist: start with a guppy, and are faced with the question of what kind of fish do the guppies get on with. It is the simplicity in the care of these fish, their harmless nature and attractive appearance that benefit this choice.

Having comfortable conditions for existence, guppies (in Latin Poecilia reticulata) will become the favorites of their owners and a worthy addition to the design of the room.

The species of guppy belongs to the widespread and numerous genus of the family of the family.x Among his fellows is a rather ancient representative, his acquaintance with a man obliged to an English scholar and priest Robert Lechmeru Guppy.

It was he who at the end of the XVIII century told the Royal Society about unknown fish that can reproduce by giving birth to living babies. Then he was mocked.

Now it is a reality that in many respects influences the choice of these aquatic inhabitants as pets.

If guppies are comfortable in an aquarium, they can live and will:

  • Cheerful and mobile;
  • Have beautiful original fins and common coloring;
  • To multiply quickly.

For this you need a little bit:

  • The optimum temperature and water hardness;
  • Its sufficient amount (from 2 liters per individual);
  • Regular topping up with fresh water;
  • Availability of food (no special requirements for the range);
  • Proper selection of neighbors in the aquarium (with whom they get along without damage).

Despite their own harmlessness, guppies will not be able to lead a carefree lifestyle with a number of ornamental fish. Who do the guppy fish in the aquarium get along with badly?

These include, first and foremost, predatory fish such as eels, cichlids, mastamblebel, barbs.

Large fish, perceiving such a “trifle” as a guppy, for live food, can eat their offspring and harm adult individuals. At the same time, the calm nature of such “comrades” is a visual deception.

For example, scalar “standing in the water” will easily eat guppies, and barbs will gladly bite their fins and tails.

Attractive appearance of goldfish does not leave anyone indifferent who decided to go in for an aquarium. Their intelligence and fascinating golden glitter deceptively create the illusion of harmlessness.

In fact, it is a predator capable of harming guppies by damaging their tails — the main tool for movement — or by eating their offspring.

The same characteristic can be given to astronotus and cichlid. These are those who are undesirable as roommates.

Given the above, the question arises: with what fish guppies get along?

Different variants of catfish living in the lower layers of the aquarium (for example, ancistrus) are a fairly acceptable option, especially near-bottom species. They seldom float to the upper half, thus delimiting their “apartments” from the guppy zone.

On the same basis fit the fighting and knife fish. In addition, catfish pick up from the bottom is not eaten food, which contribute to the purification of water.

May be suitable neighbors gourami, fighting, corridors. It is better when their settlement happens almost simultaneously.

Then the fish immediately realize the equal status of all inhabitants, and their lack of predatory inclinations allows them to peacefully coexist in one world limited by an aquarium.

According to the observations of experienced guppies like neighbors such as iris, danios, rasbora and tetras. Their combination with the original neons (the popular name “pearl of the aquarium”), bringing some sophistication with its unusual color, is organic.

Getting along with them is not difficult.

Anyone who has ever made acquaintance with the world of ornamental fish knows the Sword – proud and beautiful males with a tail extended in the form of a sword and softer females. This type of fish is also characterized by viviparous properties.

That is why swordtails, like black mollies, can get along well with guppies, especially if there is a lot of fluffy and dense vegetation in the aquarium.

The benevolent neighbor is a glass. Peaceful nature and unpretentiousness – these are the qualities that unite these fellows.

The good relationship between the inhabitants of such an aquarium is a guarantee of the neat and aesthetic appearance of the water-plant composition and the positive mood of the owner.

The aquarium community, without harm to guppies, can be completed with other living things, such as shrimp. They will never offend small fish.

Given their way of nutrition, they will be useful in the role of biological sanitation – by lifting food debris from the bottom, they clean the water, preventing it from premature rotting.

Summarizing, it can be noted that the unequivocal answer to the question: with whom do guppies get along? difficult to give. Like any biological substance, guppy fish are able to show their character and “take offense at some trifle” such as cold water or an insufficient frequency of its change.

Then they will be lethargic and frail, will not be pleased with the brightness of its color.

And vice versa. Sometimes the lack of careful water care and academic adherence to the rules of keeping guppies in an aquarium does not affect their condition. They are funny, cheerful and cheerful.

Then it’s a matter of love for them, which they expect to receive and receive from their masters. This is truly: everything must be done with pleasure!
