Description

The Golden Head Red Tail Guppy (Poecilia reticulata) is a lovely guppy variety that is not seen nearly as often as many other varieties in the aquarium hobby. Natural orange coloration is fairly rare in freshwater fish, but this guppy has plenty of it!  

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 tankmates. Guppies are best kept in small groups. 

While not a picky eater, the Pink Tuxedo Guppy will thrive and remain very colorful on a varied diet of meaty foods. High-quality flake food, pellets, and frozen or freeze-dried tubifex and bloodworms will all be readily accepted.
