Breeding guppies can be a fun but I don't know how can I do it at best. Any ideas or tips on breeding guppies?

    Get at least two female guppies per one male guppy.
    Set up a 5 gallon tank with a heater and gentle filter.
    Place the fish in the five gallon tank with similar conditions (temperature, etc.) as the tank they were in before.
    Place the male back into his own tank after the female or females get pregnant.
    Wait about three to four weeks.
    Try to be present when she gives birth, but if you cannot be, place lots of plants and hiding spots for the fry, else the mother will eat them.
    When the fry are born, tank temperature should be around 78 degrees FImmediately remove all dead fry when you see them.
    Feed the fry brine shrimp, microworms, or powdered flakes, several times a day.
    A filter is dangerous to the fry because they are likely to be sucked into it, so cover the end with tights.
    Siphon the tank carefully every time it gets too dirty and do 40% water changes every few days to keep the water clean.
    Move the fry when they get old enough.
