Aww i love guppy fry. You could raise them up and sell them or give them to a local fish store. Find people nearby that want the fry. Or you could let nature take course and allow them to give birth inside the tank. Every once in a while one will survive. :)

erm....iv already taken my momy fish and her female cousin up to by grandmas.....after thinking hard about it tday the letting "nature take its cause" sounds like it would be keep female fry and sell/give them to my pet shop :):):) i need the new blood lines anyway :):):)

i know your fry are the same age as mine so if you look closely at the fry you can see some of them are getting there gravid spots developing...:):):)

iv just re-read what iv wrote in my last posts and iv made it sound as tho im doing something awful but all iv done is tajke the mom fish away so i can keep some of her male and female fry to prevent inbreeding....thats all :):):)

ohh and do you think a 21L tank is large enough for the fry ...until there big enough for the main tank :):):)
