Smile my guppy adults and fry ..coment if you want!!!

hi all, my first post ....i want to know and talk about a few things.....

i bought 2 female guppys they were yellow with the round tail and a blue male that has a long triangular tail .....after 2 weeks the first female droped 4 babys .....just 4 and 2 were joined together , unfortunatly they didnt make it ....the other 2 babys are still here but FIRST QUESTION is 1 of the babys is almost twice as big as the other ....then the other adult female i had ...droped and she had 12 ...all in good shape and all still alive to this day .....does anyone know y the 1 guppy baby has become so big, so fast ???

any replys will be welcomed

....on a bad note the 2 adult females died due to swim bladder and never got to meet there babys which were mover to the main tank on christmas eve ....thanks :):):)

It may be a female. The females are larger then the males. Or it may be eating better.

Guppies don't start showing differences between the sexes until they're a bit larger, so some of your fry may yet turn out to be male.

i didnt like the idea of moving the female into ...like a breeder net/trap...so when i knew she were close to the birth i kept a close eye on the tank and when she was givinn birth i quickly caught the babys witha net as they were born and moved them into a breeder net ...:):):)

this way it was less stress on the female and the babys couldnt be eaten because i caught them straight away.:)

I've never seen a guppy give birth. I've spent almost a whole day watching, saw nothing. went to the bathroom, came back, and there were 10 fry. Dont even know which female was the mother because they're all pregnant :/

it was just a stroke of luck that i witnessed it....i first saw a tiny baby swimming by the surface, then looked and the female was giving birth ...it was something amazing
