Congratulations on your new fry. As soon as I get babies I raise them in separate tanks for a couple months and then when they are big enough I put them back in the main tank. Another food for guppy fry that I am starting to like are mosquito larva. If you just put a bucket in your backyard, fill it with water, place old leaves, weeds, and a couple grass clippings in there, the mosquitoes will lay eggs. As soon as the eggs hatch you will begin to see a lot of little larva swimming around. They get bigger within a couple of days so take them out of the bucket depending on the size of the fry. Not to mention adult fish eat them up too. Or you could just feed them crushed up flake food, which is what I have been doing until I heard of mosquito larva!
