I know you guys might be tired of the question but I've never owned a female guppy before. Thanks.
Always glad to give my two cents worth. I would give her at least a week if not two and depending on if she gets stressed out or not it could be longer. Looks like you have some good hiding places for the fry with the hornswart so if you leave her in the tank some of the fry will be able to hide from the adults.
Sorry about the double post but I didn't know one of them got posted. I kept getting an error message on my phone.
It's hilarious how they don't drop fry when we're counting the days and inspecting their bellies. They love to mess with us!
I misunderstood you. You don't need to move them unless they are in a tank with fish likely to prey on all the fry. It also depends on how many fry you care to save. I have separate small tanks I use for nurseries for my expensive strains. Some floating weeds like hornwort and guppy grass make it a lot simpler to protect fry.Onthefry..where do I need to move them? They are in a set up on their own apart from 3 baby (less that a week old) mollies
you can use a sponge prefilter.Oh and one other question. Does anyone know how to avoid them being sucked into the filter?
