Guppies are great beginner fish. The only disadvantage of owning guppies is that you have to save them from their cannibalistic parents. I am currently raising fry in a breeder. I made a chart and am selling my guppies off for less than the pet store. They are a great way to start off an aquarium career.

Never ever ever put theses two species in at the same time as a beginner I did this not knowing that these are rivals the molly will attack the defenseless guppy male until killed (will not attack female) sad to watch.

I grew up with guppies, and they were almost as easy as Bettas to care for. We had gravel for filtration, live plants for oxygen, and snails to eat the algae. When we had too many fry we bought a newt to eat them. We were able to create an ecosystem that really worked.
