LOL She could always send the frys my way I can find space for them somewhere if they will work with my water parimeters.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

How many tanks do you have. Pretty much anyone would become over run in no time. I went out and bought a tank for the stupid Guppies to start with but there is no way in heck I am going to keep buying tanks for babies. I will be separating the males out as soon as I can tell they are males. I only have the adult females in the 25 gallon now and about 30 babies. Not to mention the Corie's on the bottom and the snails. Flippin snails are multiplying by the thousands too. I have been ending a few of their lives or I am afraid they would move on out of the tank and try to take over my whole stinking house. I know they come from over feeding, which is what I was doing when I only had the one fry... Now, no more of that. I should be looking for assassin snails in the fish store... maybe I can trade a few Guppies for some assassins.

I have a 55 gallon, a 44 gallon, a 20 gallon, 3 10 gallons, a 2.5 gallon, and I am trying to convince my husband I need another 55 gallon that is on craigslist that has everything except the stand and fish for $50. ; ) We moved into a place that has an extra bedroom and I am determined to fill it with tanks. And maybe a bed for quest. LOL
If you really want to get rid of some of the snails put a piece of zuccinie (dont think I spelled that right) in there and when its covered with snail take it out and dispose of them. ; )

Yeah, I have been picking snails out regularlly. Now... Guppies. It would be alright if I could sex them and separate before any more breeding. I can drop a bunch more boys in the 60 gallon tank but I do not want any more oops's.

LOL Yes it is kind of hard to control the opps. Are they at least the really pretty colorful guppys?

Definitely! I love the look of these fish. They are surely beautiful. I have some females that are amazing with their purple/blue color and yellow spots on their tails. Lovely. Most of the new batch of fry are dark colored blues/ purples and appear very very healthy. I don't see any Reds or Yellow ones in this batch. My first baby "junior" is a Yellow sunset color red tail. Also lovely but admittedly, I like the purples and blues. Less Goldfish looking.
