Red Tail Tuxedo Guppy Pair (Male+Female)
The Red Tuxedo Guppy (Poecilia reticulata) is a lovely guppy variety that is now well established in the aquarium world. Natural bright Red coloration is fairly rare in freshwater animals, but this guppy has plenty of it! We are pleased to offer male/female pairs of this fish so that you can start your own little colony if you wish.
Guppies typically occupy the top level of the water column, although they can often be seen swimming and feeding in the middle and bottom levels as well. They are also not afraid to jump, so they must be kept in an aquarium with either a lid/hood/canopy or at least a significantly lowered water level. They will not eat or bother plants. They are safe with other peaceful fish as long as the other fish are not known to nip at the long tail of the guppy. Adult dwarf shrimp are generally safe as well, but guppies may eat shrimp fry. Larger, peaceful invertebrates can also make good tank mates. Guppies are best kept in small groups
