ORDERING INFORMATION

 

Thank you for your interest in my show guppies.

Due to periodic shortage of females on many strains, pairs are now being offered at comparable prices. There is a two pair or one trio minimum requirement with any order but they don't have to be of the same strain
Prices are subject to change at any time and presently reflect the cost of maintaining the high quality of the strains, as well as current quality of my show guppies.

Many of the strains pictured are non always available all year. Please inquire as to availability before placing your order.
There is a stocklist page .

for your convenience, Please contact me if the list appears outdated as it is constantly changing.
I strongly recommend sterilized tanks (bare). All strains should be kept separate; My guppies are accustomed to the following water conditions:
Temp 23-27C, EC 669 um/cm, O2 7.98 mg/L, pH &.7.8- 8.06 ( 7.6-8.2 OK), ORP 192 ( higher is better), NTU 0-5 should be clear, optional: 1 spoonful of rock salt in their water to each 5 gallons of water. Try to have some Formalin and wide spectrum antibiotic on hand in case of stressed guppies, to add to the new arrivals water.

Breeders may be setup as pairs or trios in 5 or 10 gallon tanks, or the "Critter Keeper" size tanks available in the Pet stores as well. If the fish arrive in good condition which is the norm, the setup method preferred involves adding some "Hagen Cycle " bacterial seed or dryzyme in lieu of the stress medication. Please refrain from feeding any foods on the first day of arrival. Thereafter the preferred first food is baby live brine shrimp to get them adjusted. Live newly hatched baby brine shrimp should be fed daily along with regular flake foods. Females should be fed heavily on both live brine and fresh or frozen clean bloodworms at the least every other day to facilitate large spawns. Be careful not to overfeed Frozen Bloodworms as they are high in fat. High fat content in the food is required for heavy egg production and eventual live birth in the females. Never feed other worms of any kind (except clean bloodworms), as the risk of diseases tends to be higher. Do not mix your pedigreed strains with other guppies or tropical fish. You may experiment with doing so with young fry born in your tanks,as they will adapt to your new conditions faster and then do so at your own risk. These strains represent decades of hard work by various breeders including myself and I'm sure that you will immediately notice the quality difference from commercial or pet store quality strains which are no match.

All fish are guaranteed live delivery and fertility. You only pay for the reshipping.

 

This is available in many states at the Pet store (not available in California).
