Michael’s Mutts Pair

$10.00

If you are looking for some beautiful Guppies but without the interest in breeding for perfect strains, you want Michael’s Mutts!  When you order “Michael’s Mutts” you will receive five gorgeous assorted male and female Guppies with vibrant color and excellent finnage. These fish will be randomly chosen for best appearance and are a perfect fit for your community or Guppy aquarium. Mutts are generally fish that were culled out of breeding lines because they lacked a specific trait needed to continue producing similar fish. This is not to say they aren’t still awesome fish for the aquarium, they are. An inexpensive solution for the fish lover who just wants pretty fish in their aquarium without the interest in breeding.

Guppies require at least a 10g tank, and are very tolerant of changing tank conditions. Plants should be hardy varieties such as Java Fern and Java Moss that can handle the increased hardness in the tank. Other peaceful fish would make good tank mates. The environment should have a covering of floating plants or a place to hide protect the fry. The fry should be fed brine shrimp, micro food and pulverized flakes.

The Guppy is an omnivore and requires both algae-based foods as well as meaty foods. All flake food from Fish Freaks Plus are wonderful for guppies!

Michael’s Mutts are fascinating fish. They can breed prolifically in a community aquarium.  Since they are livebearers, they give birth to babies, rather than laying eggs. It is important to provide ample hiding places, such as live plants and floating grasses, in order to give newborn fry a chance at survival. Guppies are omnivorous, meaning they eat both plant and animal matter, including small live foods and certain vegetables.
