Wow, very colourful already! I can't wait for my first molly and platy fry :)
I'm currently in the middle of switching things around with my tanks so I can breed my 5 golden white cloud moutain minnows (or at least try!) which I now have by themselves in a 17 gal. I also want to try breeding my bettas, but first I need to come up with some way to keep all the male fry separately for when they get older - I am trying to think up a way of heating an area and having lots of small separate compartments within that area. Maybe a reptile air heater and cling film/glass lid over some sort of large container with a lot of jars or something inside.

ok ive been looking around and ppl have said that guppy fry can breed at 4 weeks to 6 weeks and another says 6 months. i need to find out cause my guppys are 3 weeks old today and i dont want them to breed next week! i need to seperate them before thier breeding age. what is the real age?

as you know the yellow guppy in my pic had here first babys when she was 3 weeks old so if you dont want breeding then separate or just leave the fry to fend for them selfs....but yes if its a female you have at 3 months then she can and probs will breed

bare in mind the female of mine was HUGE compared to her sister and cousins that were in a breeder net together....but shes the only one to have had fry :):):)
