i know. it is impossible to stop once you start. after my first guppies died(of old age) i only waited a bit before getting more. they are just so addicting! i also have platies and at the mment only 1 molly.

yeah arent they great! just yesterday i found 2 fry in my tank. i think they are guppies. know that i have a female sword in the tank most the fry get eaten so it is even more exciting to find them. :D

My 8 platy and molly fry have a 10 gallon of their own in my tank though If I don't find babies within an hour of them being born my dwarf gourami will eat them. So I only found 4 platy and 4 molly fry.
