    I want to make sure that everything is cool before bringing in new fish, after losing some guppies. I don’t know if they were deceased, or fell to a combination of crashed cycle and stress.

    I have one strong little fry, and this female left from my former school

    The only ovious thing i see i some fin rot. Treat with a herbal medication and add in some indian almond leaves to help. Make sure your water is clean.

    Excellent. The fin rot is the result of the cycle crash, and is improving already. She was pretty tattered a few days ago. I'll keep up with the water changes and consider my next move. Right now it's only her and a juvenile male as schooling fish. I'll probably get a couple more females, and a different fish to go in with them. Not too worried about breeding- I've had the guppies for months now, and no breeding- so unless this juvenile turn out to be especially prolific...I shouldn't be handing too many fry back to the pet store.

    sounds good. Just a little correction, guppies are shoaling fish and not schooling. that means they don't form tight groups.
