Guppies guppies guppies!

My 19gallon planted tank has now taken quite a different turn than I expected. From a planted community tank, it is now possibly going to be a guppy tank!

Earlier on in the week I was asked if I wanted to take 10 baby guppies and I couldn’t really say no. My boyfriend went this evening to pick them up and he was given strict instructions to try and make sure he got 10 males as I really don’t want babies everywhere, and by the looks of it he did a pretty good job! They are of varying ages from 1-3months so it’s not so easy to tell, but it seems like they could all be male. They are the sweetest little things and are currently acclimating as I type.

We have a few photos of them and their packaging I’ll show you, and in a few days I’ll put up photos of them settled in. 7 of the guppies are going into the planted tank, and three are going into a new small tank I have set up in my bedroom for a new future betta, and when he arrives, they’ll join their brothers.

Here is the box and them in their bag.

Time to say hello!

Another thing which has been added to the tank is more plants. I had a little spending splurge on ebay this week, and have been buying things with moss on! Plus my beloved duckweed. I have wanted some for ages and it is one of those plants which people either love or hate. I’ll give my final verdict on this little floating plants in a few weeks when it starts to take over my tank!

This is where the baby guppies are now. Settling down to the new temperature and water parametres.

I am so so excited to watch these baby guppies grow and thrive in my tank. It may have made my plans for my community tank change, but I don’t regret it in the slightest.
