The Red Moscow Guppy is a stunning variety and males are covered in bright red and gold!

 

The Red Moscow Guppy (Poecilia reticulata var. “Black Moscow”) is one of the most striking and popular guppy varieties. This beautiful guppy displays solid red and gold coloration with elegant, long tails in males and is sure to be a standout in any aquarium!

 

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 groups.

 

While not a picky eater, the Red Moscow Guppy will thrive and remain very colorful on a varied diet of meaty foods. High-quality flake food, pellets, and frozen or freeze-dried foods will all be readily accepted.
