Guppy fry will be new to me, how long do you think she has to go?, would i be able to add the fry if i can catch them to the platy fry tank?
Mine drops fry at every 28-30 days. You should be able to add guppy fry with the platy i recently added 2 day old guppy fry to my fry tank with 3 week old molly baby's with no problem. The general rule on that is make sure that the fry cannot fit into the other fish's mouth's. Your best bet would be some java moss on the bottom and floating plants for the new fry to hide and just leave them in your tank when they are born. The baby's should do fine in hiding. Once the fry come to the top to feed you can catch them (i use a turkey baster) and add them to the fry tank. They will be easier to feed in the net, however i recommend at least a 10 gallon tank for the fry as they will grow much faster.
