Yet another pregnant guppy question
OK what can I put around the filter in my tank to keep guppy fry from being sucked in? and also what are opinions on making a fry trap out of a plastic bottle or tupperware container???? ( I dont have the extra cash for the plants or a breeder box. plus I am scared they will have the babies while I am at college during the day and then I wont be able to remove the mommas before they eat the fry
chances are that they will not be sucked up because the babies stay in plants and in the bottom(not saying it wont happen its just less likly. it doesnt matter if u have her in a birthing net or not because the mom well start to eat them before they are all born.
cut any sponge to put it around the filter intake. If you're trying to save the babies, yawn mops are great, hornwort, najas grass, java moss, and really any plant/cover will work.
Just so you know, I know you didn't mention this, but don't even think about putting them in a jar or anything. I did that with just one fry thinking it would be fine, forgetting that with gravel in the bottom it would be impossible to move it without it getting crushed. Just a heads up! :)
