baby guppys in...3 MONTHS OF LIFE??!!
you may have read my other posts about the 8 babys that are only 3 month old and the adult male i have .....well today after my tea i feed my fish and today i sat down so my eye level was online with the gravel ....and there.....a tiny fry ...i cought it and put it in a breeder net within the tank ....i then sat there looking for the next half an hour but looks theres just an only child

yes the mother to the baby is 3 months old and the dad is my lyre tail.......i dont know which female is the mom is but 2 of the female are VERY large thrilled to have more babys...:):):)

Your lyretail and guppy interbread? cool post a pic if you can so we can all see :-)

no,no no you miss under stand my guppy family tree.....the girls i have now are fry from parents i lost to swim bladder ...the male (blue lyre tail) is compleatly unrelated to the girls and the fry ( the 1 i found TODAY) must be his

about a pic i dont have a camera good evough to pick up the fry thats less than half a cm in lengh....

i know the girls are 3 month old you think the female will only have had 1 fry or do you think the others may have been eaten....or will she be keeping hold od them till lights out then "drop" them...???????

any replys will be greatly apreciated..:):):)

sorry i think iv miss the pic a pic of a lyre tail ....????...if it is then this is my male that has bred with my yellow female

I'd say the female that had the fry would of only had one because my young females are four months old and are still pretty small

Kristina10 01-17-2010 01:47 AM

and i don't think that is a lyre tail because i've seen lyre tails before lyre tails have two swords and a plain tail their swords are at the top and the bottom of their tail and are usually yellow
hope this helps
