Overview

The Red Cobra Guppy, also known as the Millions Fish or simply Fancy Guppy, is one of many unique variety of Poecilia reticulata guppy developed through years of careful, selective breeding. The Red Cobra Guppy boasts a vibrant fiery coloration and intricate marking that adds a burst of exciting visual interest to any freshwater community aquarium. "Cobra" guppies are distinguished by a rosette pattern with vertical bars on its lower body.

The Red Cobra Guppy requires an aquarium of at least 20 gallons in size. It is a very peaceful fish and should be housed with tankmates of similar temperament. Though the Red Cobra 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. This hardy and energetic fish makes an excellent fish for beginning hobbyists.

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 Red Cobra 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.
