Breeding guppies

Im thinking of turning my 15g into a guppy breeder and creating a good strong strain and selling on here or giving them to friends in the hobby. Is there ayhing special id have to do for them?

get about 1 male for 3 females would be my suggestion and let them get to it, then provide hiding spaces for the babies, they will breed even if you don't want you too haha

Just put them in the tank and find the ones you like, give them some frozen bloodworms, and watch the magic happen

For high-quality guppies, look into a local breeder and see if he has any rare or exotic strains. That's what I'd do.

Not contest exotic just a bit more better looking the what you find at most lfs. Just enough pop to make someone go wow they look beautiful.
