I think they knock over corals same with large tangs unsure if you have any corals. I think scats tend to be used a lot in saltwater tanks that have mono's and to be honest scats and monos can help fill out a larger tank without spending too much on stuff like angels and tangs.They swim together most times... and have doubled in size in 4 months

New profile pic.Announcement: I have hit a road bump it has gotten pretty cold here in California, and we had some strong winds and unfortunately my heater for my out door makeshift pond has failed. I lost a large majority of my low end brackish guppies. This is a heavy blow as these were going to add more genetic variation. I will have to purchase more, my project has been held back by the horrible and unpredictable weather of California. Though on the bright side I have gotten a new tank for housing. I also now have the first batch earlier than expected so that is good. I will be posting photos of the guppies in my main display later this week so look out for that. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me and I will try my best to answer them. If you have Instagram make sure to go follow me at, Reefing_aqua89 I will post early photos and updates of my Tanks and the Guppy project. Thanks for the support and remember, Happy Reefing.
Are those 34 guppies fully in saltwater? If they are I suppose we better know how they are doing once they breed. I guess genetic diversity might be best maintained by getting guppies from say 3 different pet stores and a few different online sources. Plus a few different varieties however a few of the very different varieties may be best initially.There I have changed my Profile picture to a yellow cobra guppy. I personal do not have any cobra guppies, I do have snakeskin guppies and they will be the next batch of guppies going into saltwater. I have also begun to shorten the acclimation process from fresh to salt, mainly because the old system was not very time efficient, and of the about 60 or so guppies I started with only about 34 survived. This shows that the guppies aren't very good for saltwater right now. The reason I am doing this is to make a large number of guppies in saltwater. I am probably contradicting myself right now but I really don't recommend trying to acclimate guppies into saltwater, If you do want to I would recommend the largest possible container for housing. I am using two 30 gallon mixing tubs from home depot. I also use large 15 gallon trash containers for them. If you are going to indeed try to acclimate guppies into saltwater use the guppy acclimation guide on this thread, DO NOT use the acclimation I am using for my project. It is too long and It is made for really large numbers of guppies. But if you are also going to acclimate on a large scale than yes you can use what I am currently using. Overall my project was a semi-success. I lost many guppies during this process, but I did get some out of this. I have now seen what I have done wrong, I can use this to prepare myself for the second batch. of guppies. Hopefully the second batch will do way better, I need the second batch t add genetic diversity into the mix. This project has also not been cheap, The water, electricity, equipment, containers, and the salt. I purchased about 8 bags of salt by Kent. each bag can mix about 50 gallons of saltwater at about 1.026 specific Gravity. This project did not come out of the blue, it took me a while to get the money and space to do this. I do this so that I can make the mistakes, then fix them so that you don't have to. If I do overcome I would like people to try this as well. My plan is to eventually purchase a facility and begin breeding saltwater guppies on a larger scale, but I still haven't finished the test runs yet so it'll be a while before that happens. Thanks for your constant support have a good day and remember, Happy Reefing. #Reefguppies
Yeah it is 34 in full marine. And yes I do get all my guppies from different stores at a time. I will be monitoring them and when they breed I will update you guys on that.Are those 34 guppies fully in saltwater? If they are I suppose we better know how they are doing once they breed.
