Woohoo! Baby Guppies!
 
I came home to find about 4 fry in my tank. I isolated all the fry from my other 4 adult guppies. I then noticed later that the mother was still popping out babies. Right now, there are 11 and counting! woohoo!! I unplugged the filter to keep the babies from being sucked in.

Just a few questions. I don't have a heater for the mini-tank where I placed all the guppy fry, so right now the thermometer is reading 74-76 Fahrenheit. Is that an okay temperature? I gave them some egg yolk for them to nibble at because I don't have baby brine shrimp. Is that ok? What other foods are recommended for fry? Thanks!

Temp is okay. Any food is acceptable. Livebearer fry tend to eat foods more readily compared to the fry from egg-layers.
