Guppy fry!

Guppy fry!

Postby pinkrblu » Tue Apr 03, 2007 11:55 pm

Went to check the tanks before bed and found about a dozen guppy fry. We had a male and three females, but after my catastrophic losses the past couple weeks, we had lost one female and the male. I haven't been excited about guppy fry for a long, long time. McKelvie and I scooped them out and they are in a plastic storage container on my desk. They've been fed and ate quite well. They're really lucky, if the things had gone as usual, instead of all my fish getting so sick, they would have been angel fish food.

Lucky babies! Seeing fry is always fun, even if they are guppies!

So far, they are still doing great. I was pretty nervous after the gloom and doom that has taken over my main tank.

Congrats on the new batch! I, too, breed guppies for Angel/Killi/Ram/Gourami food. It's good to hear someone else does, as it seems there are two schools of thought on that practice. Live food is live food, I say.

Congrats again,

How long have you been waiting on them? I'm not sure what the deal is with guppies lately. I always used to have more fry than I could keep up with. But lately, every time I get guppies I end up losing one or the other parent after just a batch or so. My dad lost his, too. Strange.

Its hard to say but some livebearers had been known to crash and its most likely a disease doing it.

I had gotten these black moscows a while ago and kept them in with some juvie Apisto hippolytae and the other day noticed the males were gone.

So I took out the Apistos and put them in their own tank, added plants and put in some cherry shrimp.

Next day I had fry.
