I know female guppies mature very quickly ( say within 6 weeks of birth) but I wanted to wait say 6 months to let my junvenile female guppies mature and grow well enough prior to letting them breed... I have them segregated and keep them healthy.. Just thought this may contribute to longevity rather than letting them breed too early..
Any thoughts? Many thanks!

It will deffinetly make breeding alot less stressful on them.

The first brood is generally a 'poor one' anyway so keeping them until later will mean your second and subsequent broods are quality.

That is possibly the best way to have very healthy breeding stock information I have seen here for a very long time.
I personally would give them a very healthy tank plenty of live plants especially floating eg water sprite this will help when breeding. A good selection of high quality foods dont be afraid to try some thing different if it works fantastic if not as least its one you know they dont like.
Have a look at My Profile at all the foods I have tried and used over the years. Just think of them as wild fish what would they eat certainly not packaged foods.
Have a look in [link=My Profile] http://www.fishprofiles.com/forums/member.aspx?id=1935[/link] for my tank info
