    Default guppys

    I'm thinking of getting into guppys again along with my discus. Anybody know of
    reputable breeders that I could contact?
    Thank you
    Jay

    Rick Grigsby has the finest fancies I've seen from a US breeder. He posts occasionally on Aquabid.

    I'm assuming you're keep guppies separately from the discus? Guppies do best at 74F, far too cool for discus.

    Thank you both for your responses. How do I contact Rick Grigsby and
    Willie absolutely discus and guppies separate. Used to raise show guppys.
    Just want to get back to them along with discus.
    Thanks

    I recommend the Mousseaus, father and son fancy guppy breeders near Detroit. They post on Aquabid as Quality Guppies. They win best of strain every year at the International Fancy Guppy Association and I've had good experience with their stock. It's not cheap, but the genetics can't be beat.

    Like Adam said, Rick sometimes posts on Aquabid. I think you could also probably contact him through Facebook. He doesn't have a web site.
    I can also recommend the Mousseaus . I have some of their genetics as well as Grigsby's in my fishroom right now. They have a web site and are easy to order from. You might have to get on a waiting list for certain strains.
    One other person I can recommend is Steve Rybicki at Angels Plus. He has a few show quality strains he keeps. I have some of his genetics in my fishroom too. You can order them through his website.

    Hi Steve
    I contacted Steve yesterday and as of now they are no longer breeding guppys.
    He said maybe in the future.
    Thanks

    Wow, I just saw that too. That's a shame. He's been selling nice guppies for years. I just got an order from him about a month ago. I wonder if he had some sort of disease outbreak in his guppy room?
