Overview

The Orange Sunshine Guppy is one of many color variations of Poecilia reticulata guppy. The hardiness of these fish as well as the fact that it matures quickly, makes it an excellent fish for beginning hobbyists. The male Orange Sunshine Guppy has a green to blue body with a brilliant orange delta tail.

The Orange Sunshine Guppy requires a tank with at least 20 gallons of water, and is very tolerant of changing tank conditions. Plants should be hardy varieties such as Java Fern and Java Moss that can handle the increased hardness in the tank. Other peaceful fish would make good tank mates.

The females in this pair may be of an assorted variety; however, you can differentiate the males and females easily. The males are smaller in size, have brighter coloration, along with a bigger tail fin, and pointed anal fin. The females are larger in size with a duller coloration, have a rounded anal fin, as well as a pregnancy patch on the lower portion of the body. Ideally, the environment should have a covering of floating ferns 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 Orange Sunshine 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.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1-1/4" to 1-3/4"

I think this wonderful fish will be of great interest to you. Especially if your a first time breeder planning to breed them. I started breeding fish not too long ago and it was a sucessful breeding. But because I wasn't there before my guppy dropped, she and her mate ended up eating almost all of them! Luckily I did get there in time to save seven of them. To bad one died from poor health, I now only have six. Today, my baby guppies are alive, active and healthy. I just hope these babies stay alive to have a wonderful life.
