 Poecilia wingei 'Scarlet', commonly known as Scarlet Endler's Guppy, is a small and colorful fish that will bring a vibrant burst of color to your aquarium. Males feature a vibrant red coloration with striking patterns, while females have a more subdued coloration. Their intricate and eye-catching appearance makes them a popular choice for aquarists looking to create a visually appealing display.

- Water Conditions: Scarlet Endler's Guppies thrive in water temperatures between 72°F to 82°F (22°C to 28°C). They prefer slightly acidic to neutral water with a pH level ranging from 6.5 to 7.5. Maintain good water quality by performing regular water changes, using a reliable filtration system, and ensuring proper oxygenation.

- Tank Size and Setup: Provide a tank with a minimum capacity of 10 gallons (38 liters) to house a small group of Scarlet Endler's Guppies. They appreciate a well-planted tank with plenty of swimming space. Adding floating plants or dense vegetation will provide them with hiding spots and create a natural environment resembling their native habitats.

- Tank Mates: Scarlet Endler's Guppies are generally peaceful and can coexist with other peaceful community fish. They are suitable tank mates for other small, non-aggressive fish like tetras, rasboras, gouramis, and peaceful bottom-dwelling species like corydoras catfish. Avoid keeping them with fin-nipping or aggressive fish that may harass or damage their fins.

- Feeding Habit: Scarlet Endler's Guppies are omnivorous and will readily accept a variety of foods. Offer them a balanced diet consisting of high-quality dry flakes or pellets as their staple food. Supplement their diet with live or frozen foods like brine shrimp, daphnia, and bloodworms to provide essential nutrients and enhance their coloration.

- Care and Behavior: Scarlet Endler's Guppies are relatively easy to care for and are suitable for beginner aquarists. They are active swimmers and appreciate a well-maintained tank with stable water conditions. Regular monitoring of water parameters, proper feeding, and a peaceful tank environment are essential for their well-being.

- Breeding: Scarlet Endler's Guppies are livebearers, meaning they give birth to live fry. They are known for their prolific breeding, and under favorable conditions, females can produce fry regularly. If breeding is desired, provide plenty of hiding places, such as dense vegetation or breeding traps, to protect the fry from being eaten by adult fish. The fry can be fed crushed flakes or specialized fry food.

In conclusion, Poecilia wingei 'Scarlet' is a stunning fish that will add a burst of vibrant color to your aquarium. With their red coloration and intricate patterns, they create a visually appealing display. By providing suitable water conditions, compatible tank mates, and a varied diet, you can ensure the health, vibrancy, and breeding success of Scarlet Endler's Guppies in your aquarium.
