Blue Cobra Guppies are some of the most exotically colored Fancy Guppies on the market today. Males sport a dark blue mosaic-patterned body with specks of black and orange residing along their dorsal fin and tail. Female guppies are a bit less colorful and have additional dark spots around the bottom of their stomach. They also are a bit fatter since female guppies hoard their eggs inside their bodies. Blue Cobra Guppies are extraordinarily popular among the aquarium community and work great for new hobbyists and seasoned veterans alike.
The beautiful fish originated in Central and South America but quickly spread across the globe. They are relatively easy to take care of and thrive in 10-gallon freshwater aquariums or larger, with temperatures ranging from 64 to 82 degrees. The tank’s PH level should fall between 5.5 and 8. Although Blue Cobra Guppies tolerate small water parameter changes, always keep an eye on the temperature and PH level to ensure your guppies remain happy and healthy.
Blue Cobra Guppies are peaceful fish that make great additions to any aquarium enthusiast’s collection. They aren’t aggressive and work well with other small, friendly fish breeds like small Tetras, Corydoras Catfish, Honey Gouramis, and other tranquil freshwater fish.
However, most males will occasionally tussle with other male Guppies. They also chase females and eat newborns if they have a chance. If you’re planning to breed, make sure to separate the female guppies to avoid casualties. Female guppies don’t need a male companion to breed and have about a five-month birthing process.
If separating the males and females isn’t an option, purchasing a breeding box and surrounding it with a few floating plants should diminish the number of casualties. Feed the babies micro foods, pulverized flakes, and brine shrimp to keep them fit and healthy.
Blue Cobra Guppies are omnivores and feed on both algae-based and meat-based foods. Algae-rich flake foods and meat products like brine shrimp and bloodworms will satisfy a guppy’s taste buds while giving them the proper nutrition.
What is the rarest color of guppy?

"The fish I received do not look like the fish in thepicture. Why is this?"
- We typically take photographs of one or two fish when we initially get them in. Since we have a large quantity of most of the various species of fish, it would be understandably impossible to provide a picture ofevery individual fish with a specific species. For some of our more rare orlarger fish, the picture listed may be the actual fish that you are receiving.If this is the case, it will be designated by ?WYSIWYG?, meaning ?what you see,is what you get?.
"What happens if my fish arrive dead?"

"What if I'm not home when the fish arrive?"
- We will always provide you with a tracking number. While the fish are packaged to survive about 72+ hours within the shipping containers, we do ask that you make arrangements to arrive home to inspect your fish as soon as possible after they are delivered to your home. Itis always suggested to provide an area for the delivery person to place the boxthat is out of direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.
"What do I do with my fish once I've unpacked them?"
- Like you would with any new fish, let the entire bag float in your tank for 15-30 minutes. This allows the temperature withinthe bag to adjust to the same as your tank and will reduce temperature shock onthe fish. After this time, you can add all of the fish and water that is in thebag into your tank. The products used within the water for shipping will notharm any existing fish within your tank and actually makes the transition foryour new fish a bit easier. After this, expect your new fish to take a few daysto become fully adjusted, this includes hiding, floating at the top, sinking tothe bottom, and not eating. After a few days, your new fish should be acting aswimming like they normally would. At this point, enjoy your aquarium!
"I want to return my new fish because x,y,z?"
- Unfortunately, we are unable to accept returns.We do recommend contacting us via email with yourorder number and as much information as possible. We will try to assist you inresolving whatever the issue may be.
