I have fry!!!!!!!
I'm so excited!! I went to feed my fish tonight, and I saw about half a dozen little ones!

I'd moved my guppies and platies from my 40 gal to a 15 gal (just cause I could! lol) and I knew the guppy females were close. I'm assuming they are guppy fry! One of my platies was showing all the signs, too, and she looks a bit skinner than she used to. She didn't get huge, but she definately was a different size and shape. lol

I'm not sure if I want to try to catch them all and raise them in a breeding tank for a while, or leave things be. The tank has rock and plants that they can hide in....and I know that there are going to be MORE fry in the very near future - I have 3 female guppies who are about ready to burst and another one not too far away!

Hmmmmmmm........this might become a really good excuse to get a bigger tank - a 75 gal would be nice - and have my 40 gal for my guppies, platies and mollies..... :hmm:
