My Two Pet Fishes: Best Friends Forever

I have two fancy male guppies, and they are a pleasure to watch each day. I look forward to seeing them every day. Wherever you see one, you see the other. Those are best pals for life. Guppies are so friendly and lively. I can tell they even love the camera too. Look at these two BFFs chilling together near the bubbles coming from the aquarium air stone in the fish tank.


I kind of wish they would do their own thing independently, but the orange one just won’t stop following his big brother around. A few weeks ago I was given a show, as the bigger fish showed his little brother some moves.

Unfortunately, a few days later, I thought I was going to lose him (my older guppy), but I gave him some fresh garlic, and that seemed to got rid of what he had. I’m not sure if he had constipation, bacterial infection or intestinal parasites.

Gladly, a month later he’s still with us. These cute little guppies are so special to me, I would do anything to get rid of bacterial infection or whatever was making him sick.

The little orange guppy is doing fine. He’s active and looking healthy. The older one looked bloated the other day, but I’m working on getting him better. He’s not that bloated like he was before, but still not back to his normal size.

He’s eating and running around, except for when he tries to get away from the orange guppy, he usually hide in the aquarium decoration. That’s where he goes when he need some me time.

After hanging out by himself, they resume their playing. These guppies play basically all day. They love the bubbles too. They take turns running in and out of the bubbles.

That’s how they spend their days, playing and sometimes fighting over peas. Yes, I give them green peas each weak, and they love it! I’ll cover that more in my other upcoming blogs.
