Siamese fry!!!
 
One of my female guppies had a batch of about 43 fry about an hour ago (which i am very pleased about ;D) one of which has a conjoined twin!!! They're both alive but i'm not sure how long they will live for. Does anyone have any idea how long they will survive and if i can do anything to help? It seemed to swim ok though. Any comments would be appreciated, many thanks!! :)

Oh dear. You may want to separate it from the others if you want it to live. It'll be out competed for food.
Where is it joined?


Just my personal opinion, but I'd cull it now... seems like it'll suffer too much in it's lifetime. :(

Dang, it would have been awesome to see pics!
It would have been even cooler if it grew up fine.
