Livebearers that wont eat their young?
Im just wondering are their any fresh water livebearers that will not eat their young that i could put in a 30 gallon tank?
Here are some links for information on livebearers. Hope they're helpful.
Freshwater Livebearers; Guppies, Mollies, Platties, Swordtails, Endlers
Breeding Guppies and Swordtails
Poeciliid Fishes: Mollies, Platies, Guppies, Swordtails
Thank you they were helpful, but is it basically just platys i can get away with
I have a tank full of guppies with many batches of fry. I never use a breeders net but I have a lot of hiding places in java moss, hornwort and lots of fake plants. I cant say for certain that some do not get eaten but there are so many that survive. They overtook my 35 gallon tank within a few months, now they are in a 72 gallon tank. They dont even hide anymore, you can sit and watch all these little dots with eyes swimming around. I also have dwarf sunset platies that have had a few batches of fry but only a few survived, I think because they are such a bright orange color. I am now thinking about what I can add to the tank for birth control. Be prepared for a bijillion fry and what to do with them. Good Luck
hahahaha mad funny at the tank birth control
A few livebearers are very easy on their young. Among the ones in my own tanks are endlers, Green goodeids, Limia melanogaster, Limia perugia, common fish store mollies, Xenotoca eiseni (red tailed goodeids), Xenotaenia resolanae (leopard goodeids), Xenophallus umbratilis (golden teddies), Xenoophorus captivus (green goodeids), Ameca splendens (butterfly goodeids) and Heterandria formosa (least killies). Well fed guppies are also quite easy on their fry although they will eat a few. They can end up looking like this fairly quickly if you are not careful though.
