no,no no you miss under stand my guppy family tree.....the girls i have now are fry from parents i lost to swim bladder ...the male (blue lyre tail) is compleatly unrelated to the girls and the fry ( the 1 i found TODAY) must be his

about a pic i dont have a camera good evough to pick up the fry thats less than half a cm in lengh....

i know the girls are 3 month old ...do you think the female will only have had 1 fry or do you think the others may have been eaten....or will she be keeping hold od them till lights out then "drop" them...???????

any replys will be greatly apreciated..:):):)

I'd say the female that had the fry would of only had one because my young females are four months old and are still pretty small

and i don't think that is a lyre tail because i've seen lyre tails before lyre tails have two swords and a plain tail their swords are at the top and the bottom of their tail and are usually yellow
hope this helps
