A variety of guppy strains are produced by breeders through selective breeding, characterized by different colours. Males and females of many domestic strains usually have larger body size and are much more lavishly ornamented.
Guppies are well developed and capable of independent existence without further parental care by the time they are born. Young guppies school together and perform antipredator tactics.
Guppies have the mating system called polyandry, where females mate with multiple males. Multiple mating is beneficial for males because the males reproductive success is directly related to how many times they mate.

Female guppy choice plays an important role in multiple mating. Female guppies are attracted to brightly colored males, especially ones with orange spots on the flank. Orange spots can serve as an indicator of better physical fitness, as orange spotted males are observed to swim longer in a strong current.
Guppies Fish at Annerley Aquarium
Wild guppies feed on algal remains, diatoms, invertebrates, zooplankton, detritus, plant fragments, mineral particles, aquatic insect larvae, and other sources. Algal remains constitute the biggest proportion of wild guppy diet in most cases, but diets vary depending on the specific conditions of food availability in the habitat.
Guppies prefer a hard-water aquarium with a temperature between 25.5 and 27.8 °C (78 and 82 °F) and salt levels equivalent to one tablespoon per 19 L (5 US gal).
