The Green Cobra Guppy, also known as the Millions Fish or simply Fancy Guppy, is one of many unique color variety of Poecilia reticulata guppy developed through years of careful, selective breeding. The Green Cobra Guppy boasts vibrant green coloration with an intricate snakeskin pattern and a showy tail fin, making it a highly sought addition among freshwater aquarium hobbyists. "Cobra" guppies are distinguished by a rosette pattern with vertical bars on its lower body.
The Green Cobra Guppy requires an aquarium of at least 10 gallons in size. It is a very peaceful fish and should be housed with tankmates of similar temperament. Though the Green Cobra Guppy is a hardy fish tolerant of small changes in water parameters, care should be taken to keep water temperature, pH, and nutrient levels in check. This hardy and energetic fish makes an excellent fish for beginning hobbyists.
Guppies are relatively easy to breed even for the beginning aquarists. If you are interested in breeding guppies, the ideal aquarium should have a covering of floating plants and a breeding box to protect the fry. Adults may eat the fry if left to fend for themselves without the breeding box. The fry should be fed brine shrimp, micro food and pulverized flakes.
The Green Cobra Guppy is an omnivore and requires both algae-based foods as well as meaty foods. An algae-based flake food, along with freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and brine shrimp will provide guppies with the proper nutrition.
