So today my female guppy gave birth to a dozen fry. I ran errands for a while and when I looked in the tank, there was only 1 left.
So automatically assuming they got sucked up into my filter, I rinse my filter and cartridge out. Lo and Behold, there were all my fry accounted for.
But looking into the bucket, I was able to see little specs moving around. I look closer and they were red shrimp fry!
I dumped the entire bucket, fry and all into my fry tank I have set up. The fry I have no problem feeding because I've been going through fry cycles with all my females for a while now.
My only question is what do I feed my red shrimp fry? All my grown shrimp in my community tank always eat food flakes left over from my regular fish, would my red shrimp fry do the same?
Do you think it is safe for my shrimp fry to be in the same tank as the guppy fry? I don't want the guppy fry thinking that they're a meal when they get bigger than the shrimp.
Any help is much appreciated!
