The Best Aquarium Size for Guppies:
You should provide at least 4L space for one fish. It is recommended to keep at least a trio (three) together. Because if you keep your guppy alone, they will feel lonely. So, the recommended tank size is at least 20L tank for three guppies. But if you wish to add more guppies or plants, decorations in your aquarium, you need to think about a bigger tank for your fishes. The rule of thumb a lot of people use is adding 3 guppies to per 40L of fish tank.

Pseudomogil species such as fork-tail rainbows, blue eyes, rice-fish and nano aquarium fish can tolerate hard water conditions.
Common Tank Mates:
Medium growing or possibly fin nipping species. Bettas should also be avoided because of their similar flashy nature to guppies which could lead to aggression from the bettas' end.
Large and aggressive species would prey on the guppies such as Oscars, or jaguar cichlids.
Always supplement fish flakes with other types of food for a varied diet. Small size pellet fish food, tropical flake food, live, and frozen goods, like bloodworms. The guppies will also enjoy fozen or live brine shrip, blood worms, mosquito larvae, etc.
Feeding them once a day is enough. Avoid giving them too much food. The food your guppies leave uneaten will rot and may pollute the water in your aquarium. Remeber to remove any uneaten food as soon as possible.
Guppy Tank Set:
