Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The guppy, also known as the millionfish, is one of the most popular freshwater aquarium fish species in the world. It is a small member of the Poeciliidae family (females 4-6 centimetres (1.6-2.4 in) long, males 2.5-3.5 centimetres (1.0-1.4 in) long) and like all other members of the family, is live-bearing.Robert John Lechmere Guppy discovered this tiny fish in Trinidad in 1866, and the fish was named Girardinus guppii in his honour by Albert G nther later that year. However, the fish had previously been described in America. Although Girardinus guppii is now considered a junior synonym of Poecilia reticulata, the common name "guppy" still remains.show more
