Why are my guppies fighting each other?

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.

Barbus

G. Meinken (1972) proposed to divide the genus into 4 new genera-Barbus (species with two pairs of well-developed maxillary mustache, scales soft), Barbodes (two pairs of maxillary antennae, scales large), Saroea (one pair of maxillary mustache), Puntius (no mustache). 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.

Barbs — are very active schooling fish that need large tanks full of plants and free swimming. At irregular and incomplete feeding along with live forages can eat gentle parts of plants. The content is suitable for soft or medium hard water, usually fresh. Temperature 20-26 °C. Continue reading
