    I found new fry today. A couple swordtaild.... two guppy fry and two Dalmatian molly fry. They are so cute!

    Should I wait a day before a water change or would it be ok to do my normal Saturday water change?

    should be fine as long as you dont suck them up in the water you change

    How cool! I've never been able to breed swordtails, but guppy and molly fry are adorable, especially dalmations!

    You can do your regular Saturday water change. If you're worried about the fry, you can always put a small net over the end of the "python" to keep them from getting sucked in.

    I am thinking about a few Dalmatian mollies and hifin mollies for my tank, but I'm worried about how they'll be in the community. The mollies in my local planted tank store seem to relentlessly chase each other. I was worried they would eat my platy fry. Where do your fry like to hide?

    I've waited three months for my swordtails to breed but it finally happened. The fry hid in the top floating hornwort plants. A few I could see at the bottom. I have lots of plants. .. plastic and live so I know some fry have a good chance of surviving. Out of all the fry... the swordtail fry were the quickest swimmers.

    Thanks. Besides getting a little over crowded. ...things are good. Overflow getting moved to two 10 gallon tanks for my kids. The golden Molly's breed more than the guppies. ... at least the ones I have!
