My guppies had their babies. Any suggestions on how to care for them. I have them in a mesh container hanging on the inside of the tank, to keep them safe. How long do I keep them there?

As a guppy breeder, personally the best way to raise the fry is having .5-1 gallon per fry. You want a sponge filter, heated tank, and high quality food(a lot of protein) to raise them to their best potential .

How many fry do you have? You should leave them in their for 1-2 weeks or at least when you can start feeding them. They won't eat the first 5-7 they are born. If you are feeding flakes you definetly want them to be acclimated to eating from the surface of the tank before giving them more room.

Congratulations on your Guppy Fry!!
I would recommend to get a separate tank specifically for you fry if you are able to. Inside your Fry tank you should have a filter ( spounge filter) and have it heated. Good water quality and nutritious foods help the growing process go a lot quicker. How many Fry did she have?
