Neil Monks will give some advice to the reader about possible skirmishes between male guppies.
Question. I have a 65-litre (14 gallon) full-cycle aquarium and 4 male blue guppies live in it. I recently added four more male guppies to the aquarium, this time red guppies, and it looks like they’re hitting on each other, but I don’t know if they’re fighting.

However, this division does not reflect the actual situation, because it does not take into account the more significant features of the skeleton structure, and the number of whiskers is different in fish of the same species. Therefore, the species described below are assigned to the single genus b.
