Overview

The Red Flamingo Guppy has a vibrant, opaque red to orange coloration. This alluring red guppy is one of the preferred color varieties among beginning hobbyists and breeders alike. The Red Flamingo Guppy also sports a white belly which adds interest and contrast against the red/orange body color. This easy to spot guppy is praised for its hardy nature and quick maturation.

One of the many color variations of Poecilia reticulata, the Captive-Bred Red Flamingo Guppy requires an aquarium of at least 20 gallons. Because of its hardiness, it is tolerant of small changes in water parameters. However, care should be taken to keep temperature, pH, and nutrient levels in check. The Red Flamingo Guppy is a very peaceful fish and should be housed with freshwater tankmates of similar temperament.

The female in this pair may be of an assorted variety. However, you can easily differentiate the male from the female. The male guppy is smaller in size, has brighter coloration with a bigger tail fin, and a pointed anal fin. The female is larger in size with duller coloration, has a rounded anal fin, and a pregnancy patch on the lower portion of the body. Ideally, the aquarium 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 Red Flamingo 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.
