Success is mine!!!!! I have two gorgeous, tiny, adorable, healthy, little Guppy fry!!!! At least, I think they're from one of my Guppies, and the other one is reaallly fat. Of course they probably won't be great quality, since they were by who-knows-who at the pet store, but I don't care. I don't know how I'll be able to bring myself to sell them :'( Hopefully I can get a male Guppy and Platy soon so I can breed lots of beautiful fry. Anyway, I have a few questions. First, how much money (US) do you think I can convince the lfs to pay for nice big, colorful Platies and Guppies? (By the way, I've noticed that the store I have in mind rarely has any good Guppies or Platies.) Also, if I manage to convince the owner to buy them, how the heck do I get them from my house to the store? (Fortunately it's pretty close.) And, you experienced breeders, do you have any tactics for convincing fish store owners that these are the best fish they'll ever buy? Any tips on growing the fry big and healthy? (They stay in the regular tank, and I let them forage for their own food.) Right now my fry are about 1/2 inch long and starting to show a bit of color in the tail, and very hyper! I'll keep you posted on how they're doing.
