    hi, I posted before about my guppies being so slow to grow...

    Now they're growing faster! I don't know why, but I guess its fine....I didn't change anything, the 2 juvies are still in a 10 gallon tank, and water parameters are still the same temp 78F ph 7, no ammonia, no nitrites, and 02 nitrates..

    fishies are happy, I didn't realize one was a male until a few weeks ago when his gonopodium started to become visible...

    It took them 8 months to reach sexual maturity!

    has this happened to anyone else before?

    1.5-2 inches is adult size, but I find it strange that they didn't mature sexually until then. Maybe it was just the male? Do you remember seeing a gravid spot on the other one after about a month?
