more fry!!

HEY GUYSS!!! guess what my female finally gave birth!! i saw a fry dart across the tank and got eaten while i was trying to save it..of course i knew who it was so i took her and put her in a breeders net and she handled it well.she wasnt even trying to get out!! so after about an hour she had a total of 22 fry plus 3 eggs plus 3 that got eaten.so she was supposed to have 28 but sadly stuff happened.but anyway that brings my total of fry to 56!!! 3 weeks old swordtail fry, 1 month and 9 day old guppy fry and 1 week and 6 day old guppy fry!!! i saw about six or seven come out of her and i love seeing that!!! leave a response please thanks

36 GALLON- PLECO, 2 CORIES, ANGELFISH, 2 SILVER DOLLARS,FLY FOX

20 GALLON- 2 female guppies, 20 fry(born 11-26-10)
