so when we got home (after they took us al out for dinner) it was 1130pm, so we turned the lights out and went to bed.
in the morning i asked my better half to check on 2 things.
1 check on pinky a shubunkin who was slow yesterday.
2 check on nugget the pleco in the platy/molly/guppy tank
he came back and said
"pinky is dead." i said "ok, well how about nugget then?"
he walked to check and found nugget with his head out of the water and his odontodes stuck in a breeder net.
i jumped out of bed and he had knocked him down to see if he would revive.
he didnt .
not a good morning. i promptly finished the wanted water change, (the water was fine tho, i checked it)
and then freed the mommys to be.
poor nugget and pinky.

A little new parent advise
Hello Rosehower, I wanted to give you some advise. Ive been breeding and raising fish for years now. I would not keep those fish in those nets. As much as we all want to make sure no harm comes to our lilttle buddies. it sometimes causes harm to do the HUMAN way of protecting our pets. Provide plenty of places for the fry to hide.Dense plants.stacked flat rocks that allow access to small crevices the adult cant wander into or under and low level lightening for a few days.(( another point I need to make- not all black anal areas are true gravid spots )) Ive had a fancy guppy for 2 years with a ** gravid spot ** that has never given birth. She was the one lone guppy in a swordtail tank for 11 months with said spot, so dont assume your fish are pregnant. Increase the temp in your tank to the 80*f range feed some live food for a few days- this usually will trigger birth in fish that are close to their time-good luck
get hold off some coco nut shellls and drill some small ish holes in to them then fry can just go in there ....im getting some tmoro because the sword that had fry 2 weeks ago looks like shes pregnant agen so im just playing the waiting gamer :):):)
