I know guppies can breed with mollies, but since there are several female guppies, it's not likely that they would go after the molly. I am sure my swordtail female is pregnant, but she's not as fat in proportion to her length as the platys get, so I'm not sure when she'll drop. Swordtails tend to be slimmer than platys when not pregnant, so she may never be that fat in proportion. I'm just watching and waiting. I don't have anyplace to separate her, or anyplace for her fry to grow up, since I already have about 150 fry, total, so unless some make it in the main tank, it really doesn't matter this time. Maybe after the current fry grow up and go to the pet store I'll raise some of her fry.
I did take a bunch of pictures of all my tanks Monday evening, and if I have time later I will post them. I also have videos, but since I'm not on youtube I can't post those here. If you'd like to check out some pictures of my current fry when they were tiny, as well as some older pictures and videos of various tanks (and my cat), you could see them at Pictures by amthyst123 - Photobucket
Holy cow thats alot of babies, and i really like you 20g set up looks good
I actually spotted a baby Danio fry yesterday in my tank window, i was surprised none of the other fish ate it lol. i took a lid off of something to catch it to put it in the breeder net with my 3 platy fry but as i cupped it, its swam half way out and i accidently cut its tail, Idk if it lived, still put it in the breeder net, but im sure it died :/ hopefully ill spot more if there is one there always has to be more lol. but i didnt go home last night so i have to wait till later tonight when i go home to check
