Some start out black, some start out clear...depends on the fish but its rare for them to start out fully colored.

Thank you, what should I do with my adult female guppy that I cant get rid of, And she's too big for angle fish to eat, I'll probally send the little ones to anglefish world.
Box them up and send them to me...I have a few fish that can manage to eat them for you.
Thats okay :) I'll try again to give them to the pet stores! Thanks everyone!

Just wanted to add some about the baby colors. I tried at one time to piuck out the color sI wanted by the color of the babies, what a joke. I tried to keep some black ones and wound up wioth orange ones with stripes. Then tried to keep the neon colored ones and got ones with black spots. Their coloration will change so much that it almost doesn't make sense, even as adults, mine will change if I put them in a tank with different colored gravel for any amount of time.

As far as getting rid of them, try to give them to your LFS. Mine will take anything but will not pay for guppies unless they Fancy and are full sized and able to be sexed. Maybe post a sale or free add at your LFS and maybe someone will want them for feeders or as pets.

does LFS mean Local Food Store? I was thinking just about all the fish stores and pet stores to sell or give them to. Our local feed store is just for ferrits, rabbits and + (bigger animals) dogs, cows horses, sheep, goats etc. The sires are fancy tailed colorful gups but I'm not so sure of the female, I thought the females didn't have as pretty colors and as big of tails, she's not the pretty kind.

Wow, this thread made me realize as beautiful as fancy guppies are and as much as I am DYING to have a guppy tank I think I would be going into territory I don't want to! I would have NO idea what I'd do with "tank 'o fry!"

Pardon the pun, but I'm hooked!
