Guppy Drop Size
I just got back into fish, and have only fish store guppies.
How many fry does a female usually drop at a time? I have several females who are pregnant, but they don't appear close to dropping. However, ever 3-5 days, I'll see a few (2-3) new fry in the tank. I did put one female who looked close to dropping into a breeder, and she dropped 4 fry within 18 hours, but that's all. That was 3 days ago. I freed her into the tank about 24 hours after her drop, and this morning I saw one fry hanging out in the main tank. It looked to be about 2-3 days old, same as the ones dropped into the breeder.
I thought they usually dropped 15-20 at a time, or am I mistaken?
