The Female Red Flamingo Guppy is one of the many color variations of Poecilia reticulata guppy. The hardiness of the Female Red Flamingo Guppy, as well as the fact that it matures quickly makes it an excellent fish for beginning hobbyists. The Female Red Flamingo Guppy can display a yellow or albino-like body color with a red dorsal and tail fin. The Female Red Flamingo Guppy is sure to add a nice splash of color and liveliness to any community aquarium setup.
Similar to other Fancy Guppies, the Female Red Flamingo Guppy does best in an established aquarium of at least 10 gallons. Though tolerant of small changes, care should be taken to maintain stable water parameters. Hardy plant varieties such as Java Fern and Java Moss are excellent choices for creating a lush, planted aquarium housing the Female Red Flamingo Guppy. Though best displayed in a biotope or colony aquarium, the Female Red Flamingo Guppy is a very peaceful fish that does well in freshwater community aquariums housing tankmates of similar temperament.
The Female Red Flamingo Guppy is an omnivore and requires both algae-based foods as well as meaty foods. An algae-based flake food, along with freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and brine shrimp will provide guppies with the proper nutrition.
