About Me and This Blog

Hi, I’m Chris Yew from Singapore. If I didn’t remember wrongly, I probably started keeping and breeding Show Guppies somewhere in 2003.

At that time, I did my updates of infos and photos in my own paid portal. But after some years, I think I’m a sucker who paid for a portal while there are so many free blogs hosting to be chosen from.

Finally I decided to migrate from my old portal to a Blog in January 2007. Though it’s not as interactive compared to the portal without the forum, but I do hope that will not discourage hobbyists from reading this blog.

  3. Hi Chris,full of infor for a beginner like me.
    I have lost abt hundred of dollers of guppies Moscow Black/Blue , Albino Red and Albino Gold.Since i just started this hobby in the middle of feb 08 and most had die including my guppies fries,only a few are alive & kicking. im at the stage of trial & error and will used all the information u provided once last time befor calling it quit.

  4. Hi Ian,
    Welcome here. To cut down on financial losses, maybe it’s good to start and concentrate on just one strain first. To breed them well, one strain already required lots of tanks and time. From there, after you have gathered enough experience then you may get more other strains.

    All the best to you.

  12. I have a question,guppies eat increase their energy to mate?

  13. does the food guppies eat increase their energy to mate? ***

  14. no. a fat guppy do not reproduce well. it is about the shape, colour and selection.

  15. Hi Chris,

    I looked through the internet and went into search all kinds of tails shapes. But I found nothing matches the yellow snakeskin males of mine which I got a few selected from a friend of mine guppy tank. How can show you this new shape tail from a picture? See if you can help me to identify it.
