The Blue Grass Tail Guppy

The Blue Grass Tail Guppy is an extremely beautiful guppy variety!

The Blue Grass Tail Guppy (Poecilia reticulata) is a very striking guppy variety that boasts an assortment of blue coloration in males. Males display this color across the entire body and all fins, but females are also colorful in their own right!

Guppies typically occupy the top level of the water column, although they can often be seen swimming and feeding in the middle and bottom levels as well. They are also not afraid to jump, so they must be kept in an aquarium with either a lid/hood/canopy or at least a significantly lowered water level. They will not eat or bother plants. They are safe with other peaceful fish as long as the other fish are not known to nip at the long tail of the guppy. Adult dwarf shrimp are generally safe as well, but guppies may eat shrimp fry. Larger, peaceful invertebrates can also make good tankmates. Guppies are best kept in small groups.
