So i made a great grab at my LFS. A pregnant female guppy who was about to burst! She didnt stress out too much from the trip home and gave birth to the 10+ guppy puppies not more than 2 days after acclimation. Could have as many as 30
They have hid in the floating plant roots and are growing and taking flake well. I will try and nab pictures if any are interested.
My questions are, as I've never had guppy fry before, how long until they grow and display gender/color? I've had them for a week about and the biggest at 1/4 inch are devouring ground up flake food and becoming more adventurous while avoiding some of the larger fish (3 inch).
Also, if I continue with the guppies spawning in the tank. Can I control what colors & patterns are produced by introducing outsider guppies?
Any advice & tips are appreciated.
