Do guppies die easily?

Yes, guppies die easily. Guppies most commonly die as a result of their new fish owners not knowing how to take proper care of them.

Guppies can die because of:

  • Overcrowded tank
  • Overfeeding
  • Poor water quality
  • Ammonia poisoning
  • Incorrect water temperatures
  • Poor genetics
  • Aggressive tankmates

When properly taken care of, guppies can live for up to three years. To ensure your guppies live long and healthy lives, feed them a healthy diet, don’t put too much food in the tank, change their water at least once a week, and clean their tank at least once a month.

Lastly, monitor how they interact with their tankmates. Separate them from aggressive tankmates immediately.
