Guppy food and feeding is pretty simple. You can feed them either plain dry food from the store or a variate of things like finely chopped lettuce and other veggies. When feeding be sure to give only the amount that all the fish can consume with in a few minutes. Other wise you will have extra food that will dirty up your tank.


Dry foods are a good source of everything that your guppies need.  You are able to buy all sorts of different dry foods. Here are just a few:

  • TetraColor Tropical crisps: These are good for keeping your fish colorful and health at the same time.
  • TetraAlgae veggie Enhanced crisps: This is a good source of veggies for your fish.
  • Tetramin Tropical Flakes: This is a good one for just an average food it also has all the vitamins needed.

So you see there are many types of  fish food. That is just a few. You have to get a fish food that is just for guppies you can get one that is for multiple kinds. You could also buy a couple different kinds of dry food and switch every couple days.


Nutrition is simple aswell. One reason is becasue most foods you buy will already have all the vitaims, veggies and others needs is them.  These needs can be also suited if you give finely chopped leetuce and other thing like that, just check a site or a local pet store first.


All fish have atleast some type of food bad for them. Guppies have a few here is a list:

  • Infusoria: Water can look  crystal clear but have this, that is why you use aqua safe.
  • Micro Worms: These are also fine to feed but to much is bad. these are also for guppy fry
  • Daphnia: Most experts would say that this is not the best food. DO NOT PUT IN FRY TANK IT WILL TAKE ALL THE OXYGEN.
  • Mosquito Larvae:Becasue of how they hatch and live don’t feed it to them.
  • Tubificid Worms: CAUTION! Feed Tubifex worms to you guppies at great risk
  • Black Worms: Same as Tubificid worms

These foods are some the worst things you can feed guppies.


Here is a list of good foods for your guppies to eat beside veggies and dry food.

  • Wingless fruit flies:Great food for guppies but never metioned to people.
  • Earthworms:These are great but most be shered and kept in a bowl for a couple days to clean them.
  • Bloodworms:They are an excellent food for your guppies.
  • Baby Brine Shrimp: Are ok to feed but use it as like a treat.
  • Glass Worms: They are a good live food for your guppies, but by no means at the top of the list.

These are three of ” Extra treats” but, before you buy besure to get the proper techquie for feeding to the guppies.

      1. Unfertilized eggs are mostly absorbed internally but can also be expelled when giving birth. Even virgin females can expell “eggs” from time to time. They are mostly immediately eaten since they are a very valuable food

  1. I don’t know how this is related? This is a guppy website. Not a puppy website. Guppies are a type of tropical freshwater fish.

  2. can guppy change color due to food etc. I have a tank of guppies non are black but after a month, one or two have rich black tail

  3. A lot of of what you state happens to be supprisingly precise and that makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light before. Your piece really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject matter goes. Nevertheless at this time there is actually 1 factor I am not necessarily too comfortable with and whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual main theme of the position, allow me observe exactly what all the rest of your subscribers have to point out about deceipt.Nicely done.
