I've always loved guppies, and I know they may not be the most exciting fish, but I decided to take up a breeding operation.
My current setup has 13 females in a 20g, 8 males in a 10g, and a separate 10g for the fry.
I've had a lot of loss getting to this point, I lost all of the females that I started with, and most of the males.
I think things have finally settled down now, but I'm still in the emptying-out stage of my females.
So far, I've had 6 birthings (henceforth referred to as "litters" until I find out the actual term).
12/15/13 - 11 babies from a now-deceased female dubbed "Big Mama." I've got some pretty red snakeskin males from one.
12/26/13 - 17 babies from an all-yellow female, also now deceased.
1/7/14 - 14 babies from a yellow female with a yellow-red divided tail, also
1/16/14 - 11 females saved from an unexpected birth from a red and black tailed female.
1/26/14 - 45 babies from a yellow lace female. Still alive, but hunchbacked. Parasites or TB?
2/3/14 - 41 babies from a gorgeous girl with a rainbow-striped tail.
