Default Re: guppies

27liters is approx. 7 gallons.............The 1 inch per gallon fish rule is a crude formula to be used with common sense.......You might do ok with 8 guppies if you have the filtration and obey a water change and maintenance schedule that keeps the water quality at it's best.

You must consider that guppies will breed and produce many fry.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!
