Tbh Kelly £2- is about the norm, females usually cheaper.... the quality of guppys is fantastic, just have to get them from good suppliers and make sure theyre not kept in salt or antibiotics etc wink
same as platies,mollies, swords, rams, cardinals, dwarf gouramis and a few other fish that can be "dodgy" from certain places namely the far east thumbs down

Guppies are great haven't kept them in years but i have noticed that the quality has really improved in them from seeing them in LFS, its funny when you see them giving birth and then the mother eats them lol
