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.
