Black Lace Guppy Care Guide

Tank Setup

  • Tank Size: Minimum 10 gallons for a small group; larger tanks are preferable for more stable water conditions.
  • Water Parameters:
    • Temperature: 72-82°F (22-28°C)
    • pH: 6.8-7.8
    • Hardness: 8-12 dGH
  • Filtration: Moderate flow filter; sponge filters are ideal as they provide gentle filtration.
  • Substrate: Fine gravel or sand.
  • Decor: Provide plenty of plants (live or artificial) and hiding spots using rocks and driftwood.

Water Quality

  • Water Changes: Perform 25-30% water changes weekly to maintain high water quality.
  • Dechlorinator: Use a water conditioner to remove chlorine and chloramines from tap water.

Feeding

  • Diet: Omnivorous; provide a varied diet including high-quality flake food, frozen or live brine shrimp, daphnia, and bloodworms.
  • Feeding Frequency: Feed small amounts 1-2 times daily, only as much as they can consume in 2-3 minutes.

Tank Mates

  • Compatible Species: Other peaceful community fish such as tetras, mollies, and corydoras.
  • Incompatible Species: Avoid aggressive or fin-nipping species like barbs or larger cichlids.

Breeding

  • Reproduction: Livebearers; females give birth to live fry.
  • Breeding Setup: Provide plenty of hiding spaces for fry using dense plants or breeding boxes.
  • Fry Care: Separate fry from adults to prevent them from being eaten. Feed fry finely crushed flakes or specially formulated fry food.

Health and Monitoring

  • Common Issues: Monitor for signs of common guppy diseases such as fin rot, ich, and swim bladder disease.
  • Prevention: Maintain clean water, provide a balanced diet, and avoid overcrowding.

By adhering to these guidelines, your Black Lace Guppies will thrive and display their beautiful lace-like patterns in full splendor.
