Here is a special guppy breeding guide from Philip Shaddock who is the owner of GuppyDesigner.com. He is also the author of the popular and breakthrough book called The Guppy Color Manual. He has written many books on guppy genetics and care. He is known for the creation of the iconic See-Thru Guppy. He suggests choosing founding adult guppies, breeding them in the main tank, recognizing the conception in the guppies, waiting for the period of gestation between 26 days and 31 days, moving the female guppies to the breeding tank, using a breeding trap or partition in the tank for the delivery, and caring for the new guppy fry.
