Overview

The Female Black Guppy is one of the many color variations of Poecilia reticulata guppy. The hardiness of the Female Black Guppy, as well as the fact that it matures quickly makes it an excellent fish for beginning hobbyists. Similar to the Male Black Guppy, the Female Black Guppy features an alluring color scheme with the latter half of its body sporting a dark, black and blue coloration while the front half of the body being a light metallic silver-grey coloration with splashes of various colors of the rainbow.

Similar to other Fancy Guppies, the Female Black Guppy does best in an established aquarium of at least 20 gallons. Though tolerant of small changes, care should be taken to maintain stable water parameters. Hardy plant varieties such as Java Fern and Java Moss are excellent choices for creating a lush, planted aquarium housing the Female Black Guppy. Though best displayed in a biotope or colony aquarium, the Female Black Guppy is a very peaceful fish that does well in freshwater community aquariums housing tankmates of similar temperament.

The Female Black 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.
