The Blonde Tux Guppy, also known as the Millions Fish or simply Fancy Guppy, is one of the many unique variety of Poecilia reticulata guppy developed through years of careful selective breeding. The Blonde Tux Guppy displays beautiful shades of red, pink, orange, and yellow coloration with shimmering metallic overtones. Tux or "Tuxedo" guppies are distinguished by its distinct, 3-part color arrangement typically featuring a different color block for its head, torso, and tail region similar to the shirt, vest, and coat arrangement of a 3-piece tuxedo.
The Blonde Tuxedo Guppy requires an aquarium of at least 10 gallons in size. It is a very peaceful fish and should be housed with tankmates of similar temperament. Though the Blonde Tuxedo Guppy is a hardy fish tolerant of small changes in water parameters, care should be taken to keep water temperature, pH, and nutrient levels in check. The Blonde Tuxedo Guppy makes an excellent fish for beginning hobbyists as it is a hardy and energetic fish that is easy to keep in the freshwater community aquarium.
Guppies are relatively easy to breed even for the beginning aquarists. If you are interested in breeding guppies, the ideal aquarium should have a covering of floating plants and a breeding box to protect the fry. Adults may eat the fry if left to fend for themselves without the breeding box. The fry should be fed brine shrimp, micro food and pulverized flakes.
The Blonde Tuxedo Guppy is an omnivore and requires both algae-based foods as well as meaty foods. An algae-based flake food, along with freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and brine shrimp will provide guppies with the proper nutrition.
