The Full Golden Guppy has been bred over many years with selective breeding and is an amazing colouration. The humble guppy has become an incredibly popular freshwater aquarium fish. They are a hardy species native to South America and have been specially bred into an array of colours, fin and tail shapes. Suited for the beginner, the guppy fish is a live bearer, meaning it gives birth to live young and will readily do so in the aquarium.

Tank Mate Compatibility:

Avoid fin nipping species and large aggressive species. Bettas should also be avoided because of their similar flashy nature to guppies which could lead to aggression from the bettas' end.


Like all guppy varieties, they are omnivores, happily eating tropical flake food, live, and frozen goods, like bloodworms. You guppies will enjoy frozen or live brine shrimp, blood worms, mosquito larvae, etc.
