They should be fine in the tank as long as there are no agressive fish species in there. In fact i would recommend the tank over a bowl. My fry are doing fine with other adults guppy and molly

it is possible, however they are good hiders look around the tank decor well and in plants. I hope he did not get eaten by that age they should be to big and fast to get eaten.

Im sorry that happened and yes it is still possible at this point, however you should be blessed with many more baby's if you still have an adult female guppy in your tank. What other fish do you have in your tank?

If possible you should set up a nursery tank of at least 5 gallons and raise your fry there. A sponge filter and air pump setup will work great and your fry will be safe and grow larger faster.

oh ok
hmm i used a tank divider in the tank with adult guppies
and put the babies on one side and adult the other
now theres only 17 babies left
some of them were born on the 25 or something like tat
i noe there born on christmas though exactly tat day the babies were born
would the babies also grow faster if i feed them more times
cuz i only feed them like 2-3 times a day
