How do I know if my guppies are happy?

You know your guppies are happy if they exhibit signs of being happy and healthy including:

  • Smooth and brightly colored scales with no discoloration
  • No bumps or abnormal growths on the body
  • Flared out fins
  • Clear, normal eyes with no clouding or bulging
  • Normal breathing, not too slow or too rapid
  • Active swimming
  • Healthy appetite
  • No hiding

Fulfill your guppies’ basic needs to keep them happy. Give them ample swimming space and avoid overcrowding their tank. Monitor and maintain the tank’s water conditions regularly. Feed them a healthy diet of high-quality flakes and freeze-dried grubs. Lastly, keep them away from aggressive tankmates.
