THE PEACOCK GUPPY IS A LOVER OF TROPICAL WATERS
Peacock guppies are a species of freshwater, tropical fish native to South America. There are nearly 300 different types of guppy throughout rivers in the Amazon, as well as in Barbados, Brazil, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela. To mimic these waters, aim to keep the water in your guppy’s tank in the mid-70 degrees Fahrenheit, with 76 degrees as an ideal temperature, according to Williamson. This can be done ideally with individual tank heaters or by using a room heater in the tank room.
