Aww i love guppy fry. You could raise them up and sell them or give them to a local fish store. Find people nearby that want the fry. Or you could let nature take course and allow them to give birth inside the tank. Every once in a while one will survive. :)

iv just re-read what iv wrote in my last posts and iv made it sound as tho im doing something awful but all iv done is tajke the mom fish away so i can keep some of her male and female fry to prevent inbreeding....thats all :):):)

ohh and do you think a 21L tank is large enough for the fry ...until there big enough for the main tank :):):)
