    Hello all!

    I recently got some guppies from a friend and added them to a well established tank with no other fish (only snails). Well a female was already pregnant, so I am wanting to add something that will eat the fry but not the adults. My 10 gallon has sand substrate as I have 2 indo rabbit snails, 3 male guppies and 2 females (I thought the 3rd male was a juvenile female :/ ), and a few different plants.

    I am looking at different things that will eat the fry and not the adults. So far I've researched African Dwarf Frogs, Swordtails, and Dwarf cichlids.

    I was wondering if anyone has any advice. Thank you in advance!

    The adult guppies will eat the fry.

    The friend I got them from became overrun due to her adults not eating the fry. Hence me looking for a little extra help

    Zebra Danios will eat them but unfortunately your 10 gallon is a bit too small for a school of them

    10 gallons is too small to add anyone else. Try catching the fry to sell to a lfs.
