I hear ya.. I was really excited with my female guppies. They were getting huge.
I only actually saw two to begin with.. one lying on the bottom of the tank kind of in a ball. Dead I assumed; but it disappeared.
And when I did a water change with a gravel vacuum, one popped out of the gravel! And then I found another one swimming around..and another.
I ended up with four alive. I guess that's okay though. I thought I'd only have one or two.


Hope you take some pictures!

sorry bout your female and fry but when iv "accadently" bought pregnant females the stress of moving must cause them to loose there babys because i only got 2 from one female but then when that baby grew up (i still have her) she droped 28 aprox on wednesday so it could have been the stress :):):)
