Guppies (Poecilla reticulata) are small tropical freshwater fish natively found in northeast South America. Due to their high adaptability they can survive in many different environmental and ecological conditions and this has lead them to be successfully introduced into many different habitats around the world. They are live bearing meaning that the females give birth to live fry. Due to their adaptability they are one of the most popular aquarium fish species. Males are typically smaller but are more colourful and have ornamental fins.
At Sirius Academy West, we look forward to watching the Guppies develop and give birth to live young.
