2 new babies
 
I have 3 female guppies and 2 female platies and this morning I just saw 2 new babies. They dont have any color so I think they are guppies but how do you tell who is the mom?? Out of the 3 guppies I thought 2 were pregnant but they did not look ready to drop yet:-?. So of course they are still in the tank just like last time. I was hoping to see the process this time:|

Ok so there are a lot of babies not just 2, I saw about 7-8 of them. This is soooo exciting!!! I love new babies, they are so cute.

CONGRATS!! but there is no way to tell who the mother is... sorry to tell you, but you must be so happy!!!

Now I guess I really have to find a bigger tank!!!! Oh how I wish I could tell but everyone still looks the same as yesterday. Oh well, I will just have to enjoy the babies!!!!!!!!

Thanks much

wow if that was me i would be happy and excited to see who the mother is. it would be cool to see the transformation of babies into adults. look up guppy and platy fry on google or something maybe u will find what the baby looks like. i still cant find my baby fish maybe they got eaten do they hide under gravel like little rocks?
