Wow great pics! They have changed so much!! Lot's of black on them. They look very happy in there!!
I moved my 5 mollies to a cycled 10 gal yesterday and they are so happy, you can tell. One moment they are all over exploring the tank and the next they are shoaling together in the space of a square inch! Only two have black on their tails yet.
Thanks again for sharing pictures! Yeah for babies!!

Thanks Jackiebabie, it is amazing how much they have changed from day one. The ones that are mostly black should develop red on thier heads and thier tails. Some of them are showing the full orange of the pineapple, and I have a few that I am not sure of yet.

Well she has dropped fry again, I now have an additonal 20 babies or so that I found when I got home this morning. I am thinking that she might have eaten a few, but still a good drop. I definitly am going to need to get the additional tank this weekend.

Thanks Beaches Yes they are the new ones are so small look mostly like eyes with a bit of a body. The ones that were born last month are starting to look more and more like their parents, and a couple of them have gotten quite large. The older ones have now learned that when I am ever near their tank it means that they are probably getting fed and they are at the top waiting for me to give them food. Hoping to get the new tank set up tomorrow and the older ones moved over so that they have more room to grow. I now have near 70 fry from the two drops, my local stores are going to love me in the next month or so when they finally reach sellable size.

Very cute babies, Barb! I'd love to have some guppies breed and have my very first group of fry... will probably stock one of my 10 gallons with them after phasing out of the fish I have right now.

It has definitly been fun raising them and watching them grow. I have a few from the first batch that I am waiting to see what they do on their coloring. Fortunately my local stores will buy from local breeders so I have an outlet for all the babies. Otherwise I would end up having to leave them in the community tank, where they more than likely become snacks.

Was able to finally get and set up my 20 gallon for a grow out tank. Had an additional sponge filter that has been in my 50 gallon for a few weeks now, so hopefully will help with the cycling process. Although with doing 10-20% water changes every day or so I am not overly worried about levels getting out of hand. I moved the largest fry from last month over to the 20. Every one seems to be happy in both the 20 and 10 now, with plenty of swimming space for every one.

Some ones Fishies are busy :P haha, talk about alot of babies, i wish i can turn a 20 gallon into a grow out tank, haha, well i could if i could get a stand for my 55, They will grow real fast in your 20 gallon since you do daily water changes on them, I've notice a big difference on my current fry's growth with daily water changes :D
