New mom again :)
 
So last weekend i found 5 babies in my 10 gallon, so i took and made a divider for 1/3 or the tank for the babies, their either molly or platy, but im leaning more to the platy side because 4 of them are orange a couple have a black speck on them and the 5th one is grayish, and now today one of my 2 pregnant guppies is in the process of having her babies in my 20 gallon that has 2 female mollies, 2 male guppies, 2 female guppies, 1 for sure male guppy baby, and 6 what look to be female guppy babies(not saying postive on that cause who know may have late blooming males in there, their only 2 months old)

So far i have captured 20 babies to put with the other 5 babies i have, she looks like she is only maybe half way done, im taking a break from catching babies even though i spotted more than the 20 i have caught, i dont want to stress her or my other fish out, i was being ever so careful and slow at catching the babies :)
So excited to watch these ones grow, no idea the color outcomes cause i just bought her saturday, she was a feeder guppy due to lack of no color, but i saw males in that tank with lots of color, some crossbred endlers, so i have to wait and see, Ill try to post pictures next tuesday, lots going on between tomorrow and monday

They are doing good, I'd swear the ones in the 20 gallon now have grown even more with being in a larger tank. I lost a couple when I moved them, but they do seem happier having a bigger space. My new ones from last week have been doing well. When comparing the size between the ones dropped in July to those dropped this month it is hard to believe the older ones where that small :-D

You can quickly run out of room if you try to save all the fry :-D I am planning on trying to get the timing down on either one of my pineapple platys, or my peppermint platy the next go around. See what they give me, along with that add a little variety to what I am supplying the local stores with.

Lol well my LFS said they will take any i need to get rid of so im not to worried, cause in return ill get store credit, just waiting on my Endlers to breed and have some babies

Always nice to be able to get the extra money, if it be actual cash or store credit. It is good when the fish are at least able to help in some of their upkeep, even if it covering for the cost of thier food.
