My opinion is not to use breeding units as these can be stressful for the mums. If they're just going to be used as an ocassional treat then you will end up overstocked if you save them all. Heavily plant your tank and most of the fry will be able to hide from the parents and not get eaten. Some might get eaten, by the parents but this will keep your stock down a bit.

Good luck!

Thank you :)

~Fear is nothing but the lack of knowledge.

How would you like someone to stab you with a needle the size of a pencil and inject you with flourescent dyes??

my feeder guppy breeding tank is planted and decorated just like the rest of my tanks simply for aesthetic appeal... it makes it a little harder to catch them sometimes, but there are enough fish in there that i don't have to try too hard to catch what i need.

i always use feeders to start a tank cycle too, by the way :)
