    Hello all!

    Jus wondering if anyone can point me towards places that carry quality guppies...not those mass tanks with a lot of cheap ones

    Only place close to that as I have seen is at c328 where I noticed these little baggies beside the counter where individual guppies are packed... Am a noob to guppies been keeping cichlids and a blue crayfish... Note the guppies will be in a new tank so no worries there!

    Any help or pointers would be great! Can't seem to find many posts about guppies here think I'm just bad at searching

    Cheers!

    Re: Where to find nice guppies??

    There was a farm near Farmart in LCK that sold some nice guppies. Place was called Guppy Galaxy. I'm not sure if they're still there, but here's their website:

    To get quality guppies, you can probably try the Marketplace in this forum and the Guppy Club forums. There are some fancy guppy breeders with excess stock to let go from time to time.

    There's many ways and places you can get fancy guppies.
    You can find some private breeders keeping some fanciful guppy strains;
    http://www.arofanatics.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=34

    Guppy Galaxy is not located at Pasir Ris. The place is Lim Chu Kang, Sungei Tengah I think. Alternatively, Guppy Center is another good place to look for fanciful guppies.

    Guppy Galaxy and Guppy Centre are two farms you can go to get good quality guppies , however , in my opinion , the fishes there are not very very well fed compared to the guppies you get from breeders .I would recommend you to get a pair of guppies from a seasoned breeder as the fishes will adapt better and breed faster for you too.

    If you are looking for guppies of great quality, it is best to approach the home hobbyists as they may have dedicate most of their time and effort in perfecting the strain. Hence the quality for the price that you pay would reap better returns. However, do make occassional purchases from commercial guppy specialist's shops such as guppy galaxy or guppy centre for outcrossing their line into your existing stock to strenghten them up. Also usually such specialist's shop would carry a mass variety of guppy strains to wet your appetite.

    hi

    You might want to try the old man at Tiong Bahru market (not Ben). Over the past 2 weeks, I saw good quality normal guppies, including ribbon retailing at about $1 a piece. The only problem is that they are all males & I did not see german tux. But, if you are looking to populate yr planted tank, those guppies are very nice & cheap.

    Re: Where to find nice guppies??

    Don't start is my sincere advice!!! Forget about guppies. I gave up after spending thousands of dollars getting from so call reputated breedeers in Taiwan, Hong kong and local breeders. No one will willing to release true genes to you. You will get inferior or second grade female guppies gene. Worst mass up gene. Moreover guppies require frequent water change, best by system auto water change. A lot work and money.

    Trust me don't start. Give it up now even without starting. Best!!! Try breeding good shrimp line. Better. U can still get original good gene shrimp strain. Some more shrimp tank require less maintenance and water change.

    Trust me!! If u still insist and want good guppy strain. Call me I'll give u those Taiwan and others contact. Than become like me. Spent thousands of dollars and get nothing back.

    Regards,
    Tam
