yet more babies!!!
i vowed not to try and save anymore fry, but i couldnt resist...... pheobe, my large blue guppy, was showin signs of goin into labour this morning. so i popped her in my huge net, and wen i got home, low and behold there were about 20 babies, only 9 survivors, due to the other fish sucking at them from the bottom of the net(again!). thats it now, ive successfully saved fry from all 3 of my females, i will no longer save any and let nature take its course!!!! mum and babies doin well :):):)

I don't if I need to say congrats or offer you another tank to keep them all in! Hope you have fun with them all and get some color combinations you really like.

Congrats again on the new fry! I said the same thing about not trying to save anymore fry as you did, but when my molly started giving birth again I put her in the net too. I also have a pregnant guppy in my tank lol so I am sure she will be ready to give birth soon, currently I have swordtail and molly fry in breeders, I will try to get the guppy fry in there, and after that I am just going to let nature take over if anymore fish get pregnant. Its just so much fun and the fry are so cute :D

congrats on the little ones.. :) one of our platys had babies last night
54 of them :shock: and all but 3 has survived, 1 still birth and she eat 2 before i could get to them. :cry: there was 1 other in the 55 but we havent seen it in a while, to many hungry mouths in there for it to survive very long but who knows maybe he's a fighter.If he lives and we find him his name will be Lucky...
