Abstract
<jats:p>&lt;p&gt;Water temperature could affect the reproduction of broodstock and sex ratio of progeny.  In this study, broodstock of guppy (&lt;em&gt;Poecilia reticulata&lt;/em&gt; Peters) was reared in different temperature to determine its effect on reproduction of broodstock and sex ratio of their progeny. The result of study show that broodstock reared at 27°C produced more fry (16 males mean) than that of 30°C (10 males), while broodstock reared at 33°C produced no progeny.  Percentage of male fish produced by broodstock reared at 30°C is higher than that of 27°C.  Incubation time of embryo before birth is sorter in broodstock reared at 30°C (4-12 days) c...
