Hahaha!!! True. Though the neons can eat the fry, the guppies will breed more than they can eat.

I don't count on anything eating fry anymore. I even had my big Gourami in with the fry and she wouldn't even do them in. Guppies are like Tribbles, they just keep multiplying.

If you don't want to chance your tank being over run with Guppy fry and you don't have a place to take the babies, stick with the males or... all females and hope they were not fertilized before you bought them. ha ha
