Thank you I really enjoy my tanks. I credit it all to my big brother who gave me my first tank for my 10th birthday. I have had tanks every since them. I am saveing up to get around a 50 gallon tank so I can have even more fish. LOL

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

I know it is pretty addictive. I started with a 3 gal tank with 1 goldfish, than moved the goldfish to a 10 gal and then got a 35 gallon and now I am looking to upgrade to a 55 gal. Enjoy your babies for now.................

I would just leave alot of floating and plants at all levels for the babies to hide.Stack rocks or make a cave area for them to hide. When your guppy is done having them take her out of the tank. That's a good idea to have her in a 2.5 gal. tank to have the babies. I just kept an eye on mine through out the day and when I noticed that she was skinny again I took her out and put her in my main tank. I kept the babies in a 2.5 gal til they got bigger and not fit in the guppies mouth. feed crushed flake food.

Here is a good web site I saved under my favorites:
Guppy Information

On the left hand side they have a section about pregnate guppies. The story on how she got started is sort of funny. Good luck with the babies!

Anymore babies? My Tiger/hybrid endler just had some more babies yesterday in my big tank. I had (51) from 2 females. 1 female died after giving birth the next day. i shipped(28)babies to the guy I bought my Tigers from on E-bay with a pair of adults. He lost all his Tigers he breeds from a guppy he got from Thailand. He was contacting people that bought his stock to buy or trade. I felt bad for him so I sent him the babies. I don't have the tank space to raise that many babies. They were going to San Francisco. I will be getting his fish today priority mail he shipped on the Sept. 8th. I get(8) German Snake Skin Red Lace Guppy fry. I can't wait to get them today. I have never shipped fish but used his styrofoam box to ship them and he sent me breather bags. I hope he gets them in good shape. I put some floating plants in my 55 gal. tank just in case some more baby fry turn up. I'm sure my bigger fish 6" Angelfish had a nice snack. I have about (27) to raise in my 5 gal. tank. all the females have their own 5 gal. tank and the males are in a 6 gal. The German snake skin fry will go in a 5 gal. tank and when they get bigger into my 55 gal. tank. The excess babies that did not color up to what I wanted will go on Craigslist to rehome. I'm only keeping a few females and mostly males that have a certain color combination for my breeder stock. If I see anymore babies in my 55 gal. they now have a place to hide in the floating plants. I can't save anymore til the ones I have get bigger and I rehome the ones I don't want. It is fun raising them and watching them color up at 6wks-9wks.

I don't know why that face popped up in my # of fish I sent. I tried to edit it but it won't go away. I shipped (28) and I'm getting (8) German snake skin fry.

What are German Snake Skin? They sound interesting. These little guys are very fast and hard to see. LOL Maybe when they get a little bigger I can get a better count. Do you think it would be ok to put a Mystery Snail in there with them to take car of any food the little guys don't eat? Congrats on your babys by the way.

Wow I looked up the German Snake Skin Guppy that is one pretty guppy no wonder you are excited.

Amanda
