Full Answer

Goldfish are fresh water fish and require cooler water. Guppies are tropical fish that need warm water to survive. Also, the two species need a different diet. The food made for one does not have the correct nutrients for the other. Since guppies are smaller, the goldfish might eat them or not give them a chance to get to the fish flakes. In addition, goldfish require the water to be changed more often if a strong filter is not used. The filter may be too strong for the guppies.
