My Guppy Baby Question
 
It has been 3 weeks and some of the fry are turning yellow. Some are not. Are they yellow ones probably from a yellow father and going to turn into like a yellow cobra and the darker ones will be females? Thanks

They could be the colors of the parent, they could turn out to be mixes of the two and oyu could find colors that neither of the parents have at all. There is so much intebreeding of live bearers colors and variaitons that it is not unusual to get very odd and off colors from the parents colors in their fry.

All are yellow like their father but one is definately bright blue like her mother. But now, all the yellow ones have a little blue on the tips of their yellow fins. It is gorgeous. Breeding fish is an amazing and exciting thing.
