More guppy fry

I was so pleased today. One of my guppies gave birth during the day so the kids and I could watch. :)

A good batch, too - 15. Hopefully we'll get sone boys in this lot! The babies from an earlier drop (which I left in the main tank) are all girls - and getting some nice colour in their tails.

See - girls are tough! We can survive pretty much anything! lol

There is different things that can effect the sexual out come of the young, PH, temp,
I myself have found, When you leave them in with the parents to grow,
You get way more females then Males,

I've heard different folks say different things,
For me higher PH & Temp gives me way more females,
Leaving them with the Adults gives me even more females,

When I want more Males I keep the temp lower (76) as well as the PH being lower & seperate them from the Adults.
This is just the opposite of what I have heard others claim.,,

So I think somehow their is other variables in play, Like perhaps the water chemistry, your location,
