I bought a pack of young guppies from a breeder a couple of months ago because the 9 gallon tank in my living room was a little uninteresting with just a lone betta in there, and people kept asking if there were actually fish in it.
Now, I know a lot about betta fry because I breed them, but silly me totally forgot to look up anything about guppy reproduction. I assumed they would take several months to mature anyway. Well, they're mature XD I was looking at the tank a couple of days ago, and to my shock, there were tiny fish in there! I quickly looked up some info on guppy fry care, realized the babies were in danger of being eaten, and removed the adults to another tank.
There are 3 fry and they're all healthy and active. I'm sure there were many more, but these are the only ones that managed to evade being eaten. I've been feeding them frozen BBS, flakes crushed to powder, and Golden Pearls. They've grown a lot even in the last few days. I estimate they're about a week old or so.
Should I be feeding them anything else? Any other important care instructions for me?
I know I have another pregnant female guppy and I will be watching her closely so I can move her to the fry tank when she's getting close to giving birth.
Also, what are the best brands of guppy flakes? I've just been using the ones from the breeder but I will run out sometime in the next month.
And finally, if anyone thinks they might like a pack of lemon yellow leopard lyre tail guppies in the next few months, please let me know. I will need to find homes for the babies and I will offer them to anyone here for free as long as you pay shipping + cost of heat pack.
