Guppies are native to Venezuela, Brazil and various other Caribbean Islands. However, they have been introduced to several different countries on every continent, except Antarctica – mainly as a means of mosquito control.
They are a popular fish in aquariums as they liven up any tank with their vibrant colouring and active nature. They enjoy being kept in groups and are a generally peaceful fish, although sometimes they can nip other male guppies or top swimmers.
