We now have USA-Bred specimens of this guppy with superb coloration!
The Dwarf Blue Panda Guppy (Poecilia reticulata) is a relatively new color strain that has only very recently become available. Its white and black/dark blue overall coloration is beautifully highlighted with iridescent lighter blue across most of its body. While it is rare, the Dwarf Blue Panda Guppy has quickly become a popular fish for the nano or planted aquarium, particularly due to its exceptionally small size, which makes it an excellent cohabitant for adult dwarf shrimp. Females of this guppy are extremely rare, but we get them whenever we can!
Guppies typically occupy the top level of the water column, although they can often be seen swimming and feeding in the middle and bottom levels as well. They are also not afraid to jump, so they must be kept in an aquarium with either a lid/hood/canopy or at least a significantly lowered water level. They will not eat or bother plants. They are safe with other peaceful fish as long as the other fish are not known to nip at the long tail of the guppy. Adult dwarf shrimp are generally safe as well, but guppies may eat shrimp fry. Larger, peaceful invertebrates can also make good tankmates. Guppies are best kept in small to large groups.
While not a picky eater, the Dwarf Blue Panda Guppy will thrive and remain very colorful on a varied diet of meaty foods supplemented with foods high in spirulina or other nutritious vegetable content. High-quality flake food, pellets, and frozen or freeze-dried foods will all be readily accepted.
