    The spotted tail had then shes normal sized now I took the adults out so babys that are left are safe 7 survivors that I can spot some still hiding 7 came out to explore once I moved the 2 other not the mamas to community tank and mama to her own tank for the night

    Still has what look like fry eyes in her gravid she may not be done yet I'm not sure but I'm saving the few I did get 6 pregnant fish and been wiating a month and fianlly 1 delivers

    This actually fits with my blue 1 and shes been swimming at bottom face down tail up...2 of my pregnant fish look thinner

    You need to get a breeding trap for the guppies to increase survival rate if you want to breed them, young guppies are very vulnerable to being eaten by adults until they grow a bit

    I moved adults in a separate tank I saved from what I counted 10 fry all in a 10 gallon :) they have potential homes already in a few weeks whe they're ready :) pet store will take what donemt get a home :) I have a breeding trap but it killed 1 of my guppys in less then 12 hours so i wont use it

    Just s nice pic 1 I got they came out of hiding when adults got moved :)

    They're too small to I'd based on looks, so what I would look for is the female who got skinny all of a sudden
