The general rule of thumb is that you should feed your guppies at least two times a day with about 1/6th of their body weight. If you have a large community tank with a lot of guppies in it, you will need to reduce the amount of food you give them so that they all get the same amount each day.
If you are feeding a guppy a diet that is too high in protein, it will not be able to grow as fast as it would if you were feeding it a lower protein diet. This is because the protein in the diet will be broken down into amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein.
As a result, the body will have to use more energy to break down the food, resulting in a slower rate of growth. The same is true of a high-protein diet for a fish that has a slow growth rate, such as a bluegill.

How long can guppies go without food?
Adult guppies can live without food for up to 2 weeks. It shouldn’t be a problem to feed guppies once every two weeks. Sick fish can be a sign of an underlying health problem, such as a bacterial infection or parasites. If you suspect your fish has a serious illness, contact your local aquarium store or veterinarian for advice.
How do I know if Im feeding my guppies enough?
Drop a tiny pinch of flakes into the water and watch the guppies eat. They should finish the meal in about 60 seconds, and no longer than a few minutes. You can feed them once or twice a day if you put them in a well-ventilated area.
If you want to make your own guppy meal, you’ll need a food processor or food mill. If you don’t have one, a blender will work just as well, but be sure to use a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix or Blendtec, to get the most out of your meal.
Can u overfeed guppies?
Puppies will eat as much food as you put into their aquarium. This desire to eat constantly can result in guppies becoming bloated through overeating. If you want to keep your guppy healthy and happy, you need to make sure that they have plenty of food and water.
You can do this by providing them with a variety of foods that are high in protein, vitamins, and minerals. These foods will help them to grow and develop properly. They will also be able to digest the food that you provide them, which will make it easier for you to feed them what they need.
How often should I change my guppies water?
DGH 8-12 is the ideal water hardness for guppies. It’s very important to know the correlation between water hardness and pH. The general rule is to change half of your water every week. Water hardness can also be measured in parts per million (ppm). This is a measure of the amount of dissolved solids in a given volume of water.
For example, if you have a 10-gallon tank and you want to know how much water is in it, you would divide 10 gallons by 10 ppm and then multiply the result by 0.1 to get the number of gallons in the tank. Water hardness is usually expressed in ppm, but it is also possible to measure it in milligrams per liter (mg/L) or grams per cubic foot (g/ft3). For more information, see How to Measure Water Hardness.
How many guppies should be kept together?
You should keep guppies in groups. Ideally, you should have at least a trio of guppies in your fish tank. If you want to keep more than a trio of guppies, you will need to increase the tank size of your fish tank.
If you want to keep a guppy in a larger tank, it is recommended that you keep it in an aquarium with a minimum of 10 gallons of water. This will allow you to have plenty of room to move the fish in and out of the aquarium.
If you do not have enough room in your aquarium, then it may be a good idea to purchase a smaller aquarium to accommodate your larger fish.
What is the lifespan of guppy fish?
The lifespan of guppies in the wild is typically around 2 years. Different evolutionary processes may be responsible for the variation in life history characteristics of guppies. Life history traits of the guppy are determined by a number of factors, such as the availability of food and water, the presence or absence of predators, and the degree of predation by other species.
For example, some species are more sensitive to changes in water temperature than others, which may affect their ability to survive in a changing environment. Other factors may also affect the ability of a species to adapt to changing environmental conditions. These factors are discussed in more detail below.
