Oh no! Oh I'm so sorry! That's so sad :( I was so excited for you :(

I deal with losing community fish (not bettas) very well, since I learned as a kid not to get too attached.
But mama and babies dying is rough :(

UPDATE: This same guppy had babies again last night! She was just so huge and the male wouldn't leave her alone so I put her in a fish bowl. There she had 50 babies over the course of a few hours. 50 babies! Not including the three or so that were stillborn or died soon after birth, and the one she ate. The dead ones became tasty snacks for my other fish :P

Thanks! I've set up an old 10 gallon for them to grow out in, I was not expecting that many fry! It's being used to hospitalize some fish atm, so they're in a breeder net in the 20 gal, but I'll clean it and move them in there in about a week or so.

You should have seen this guppy, her belly was HUUUGE! She's now back to normal size, which is crazy to see. She must feel so much better!
