hi guys, aqua plant is good for guppy, but plants wil release some protein to the water after the process fotosintesis, so if u notice there wil b a layer of oil like floating on top surface of water, if u dont hv a surface skimmer, then just put in 1 or 2 black molly fish, and if u wan to hv babies guppies, then make sure u hv a lot plants inside the tank, the ratio for male : female the best is 2 male : 1 female. if u just keep for fun, then any breed wil do, but if u r a beginer, then i suggest u dont go for the red eye / albino red eye species, they r quite hard to handle bcos they cant really see! if u mix with other fish/types, then they wil always kena bully. any fish food or bloodworm is good enug for them. if u wan to hv nice plant tank, then make sure u hv a lamp with at least 6000K full spectrum n water temperature keep to around 25-26C. just to share my basic knowledge, anyone kno mandarin n interest to learn more can join the site i recommend. peace
why black molly fish? do they eat the protein?

my mind used to think that fishes lay eggs
how did you all maintain the babies? how to feed them?
anyone moved the babies after the mother finish giving birth?
or when you all see signs of giving birth, then shift the mother to another tank?
i'm still wondering, how to measure how many gallon my tank is?
mind to advise?
if lazy or forget how to count, i always use this websitehttp://www.fishlore.com/ConversionCalculator.htm

ic ic...but normally real plant will always die faster right?..unlike plastic one..i think around few weeks d need to change lor..and which one is better for breeding guppy ar?
thats because your aquarium does not have the necessary requirements for a planted aquarium (lights, co2, fertilizer, etc). maybe you can just purchase does easy plants like java ferns, anubias, and some floating plants
