Fancy X Feeder Guppy
I have this huge over sized guppy and this super tiny feeder. He is the Biggest Guppy have ever had. he is bigger than the biggest Female I have ever had. The feeder is a little less than half its size. he has been chsen her around. I heard that if a male fancy guppy breeds with a small feeder the fry will be too big for the feeder to handle, is this true?

Th feeder is preg now. Not sure if its from the other tank it was in or if my guppy bred with her.

Hopefully, whoever she got busy with, she'll survive the birth and the fry will be okay. :3

The same thing happened with me. My feeder male is trying to breed with my female fancy, but I just can't tell.... I have 2 babies, they are white and hve spots all over them, so I thought they were mollies (my female did shrink) after, but I am rather confused. After looking at some pictures, I can't tell if their gups or mollies.

GuppyColorMaker i would say that your guppies are not mollies. In my experience when a feeder and a fancy guppy breed you will get a mix. There are mixes of the feeder and fancy in your fry, is my guess.
