Guppy babies growing up :)

So About 2 months ago i had about 50 guppy and molly fry all born around the same time, after being gone for 8 days then home for only 2 days before i left for another 19 days i finally came home to only 15 fry left that were all guppies, and then i ended up giving 6 to my friend who was starting up a tank, and now im left ith 8 and 1 of them are showing colors
He is going to be a very pretty male, This is my first bigger group of babies raised at once, i raised 3 platy fry but 2 died to ich around 3 months ago, but i still have the last one, and at that same time i found only 1 guppy fry in a tank that had no fish in it, and i still hae her, and now im sucessfully raising these 8, I just fought off another outbreak of ich with out loosing any this time :)


I cant wait for the rest to get their colors too, but i think only 1 is a male :/

If a male is showing colours, he will be able to impregnate any females in the tank, just so you know.

Thats what i thought, but i tried to put him in the tank with my mollies, my other male guppy, and platies, and they tried to eat him still, he is still really small right now, due to lack of water changes his first 3 weeks of being alive because i wasnt home much, but i've been doing water chages almost daily now
