Here's my problem, I will probably be moving this summer and since I have 5 tanks in my little apt. I need to get rid of some of my guppies to make it easier to move. I have around a dozen yellow snakeskin / cobra hybrids and a couple dozen blue/ HB blue hybrids. I could sell them on aquabid but I'd rather offer them to the wonderful ppl here for nothing more than the cost of shipping.
Another problem is I don't have breather bags to send them in. I have plenty of boxes and a few heat packs (but the heat packs only last for about 8hrs)
PM with your zip for a shipping quote.
Thanks for looking.

Here's some pics of the brightest cobra male so far. (some of them won't show their full colors for another month or two)

I would like to raise at least a pair of each of these, please. I will send you breather bags (5X) and heat pads (2X 24hour at least) if you like. Zip code is 92807.

Thanks!

Thanks JC! I'll probably have to do this again before I move. Darn Gups just keep spittin' 'em out. :) They're worse than Rabbits! But then again I knew that before I started keeping them. They're just so cute I can't bear to use them as food for other fish.

how long does it normally take for them to have babies? I have a few guppies and one has been huge for weeks.

Just as a curiosity... My shipping zip would be close enough to Neon's that you could give me the same quote and be safe. Please send at your earliest convenience.

Thanks very much.

Guppies usually have babies every 4-6 weeks. This can be affected by stress, poor water quality and/ or aggressive mating advances. These gups are still a month or so away from mating age. It is usually recommended that you have a 2 female /1 male ratio to keep the males happy.
Pm me if you need more help with your gup CC. I'll try my best.
