Guppies only giving birth to one fry? Question

    Hi

    So about a month ago. While water changing I found a fry. I removed it from the main tank And put it in its own tank. Anyway a month later I found another one. That looked the same size as the original one when I found that. I was wondering is it normal to only find one. Not sure if fish had anthers and ate them or if the fish is only giving birth to one. Couldn't get a better picture they move too much [​IMG]

    There were probably more but they've been eaten, that's nature's way.
    It is possible some may still be hiding & more will appear.
    What else is in the tank with the guppies?

    Just guppies and various tetras in my tank.

    I would imagine they have been eaten, both male & female guppies will eat the fry & the tetras if they fit in their mouths
