New Proud Parent

2 days ago I put my pregnant female guppy into this floating breader box so when she gives birth the babies drop down and she can't eat them.

Well today I was walking by the tank when I saw a little tale wiggling by her fin. Then babies started popping out one by one.

So now I have 10 babies.

I was so stoked but then sad because I had to go to college.

I have a 20 gallon tank with Guppies, swordtails, platys, a snail, Otos, Corys, and an Birchir.

Sad yet more exciting news. Another female guppy gave birth but I didn't know she was pregnant so when I saw babies I scooped them up but others I think were eaten.

Oh well,
I guess you can't save them all.
