guppys?

My sister has two ten gallon tanks full of guppys. I guess they just kept having babies for ever and she wants me to take some off her hands. I don't know what kind they are, Im not even sure I want to take them. Pros and cons about guppys? She said she would give me all males if I want, I don't want babies. She has also been putting salt in the tanks, I don't do this. Would it be too hard on them if I acclimate them to my tank? TIA!

OMG if you dont want them, i'll pay for them!!!
i love guppies.
pros. beautiful. livebearing birth. not too big. easy to care for. extremely hardy.
cons. breed like rabbits. only males are the most pretty, females are somewhat dull. i cant think of any others.
thats imo

I find the fancy male guppies to be one of the more beautiful of the tropical fish. They should acclimate just fine - they are very hardy. Go with all males if you don't want babies.

If you don't like them, don't waste valuable real estate in your aquarium. But then again, looking at your signature, I'm guessing an aquarium that big looks a little empty.
