The Yellow Sunrise Guppy is one of many unique variety of Poecilia reticulata guppy developed through years of careful selective breeding. As its name implies, the Yellow Sunrise Guppy displays sunny shades of bright yellow coloration with shimmering metallic overtones. Hints of green coloration beautifully accents the bright yellow coloration to dramatic effect. We're certain this attractive livebearer is sure to add cheer and lively activity to your freshwater aquarium.
The Yellow Sunrise 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 Yellow Sunrise 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 Yellow Sunrise 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 Yellow Sunrise 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.
