New fry Help

  1. passion336 Initiate Member

    hello

    Ive just found 2 fry and there about 5mm long? does any one know how old they are by that size

    I think there guppys as a have a square guppy swiming around lol

    is it ok to put a female in with fry in a breeding trap?

    if it happens to not be the mother will anouther female eat the fry?

    kind regards

    Any guppy will eat the fry even their own mother so if you would like to keep them I would suggest carefully moving them into the breeder trap alone using a never seen soap jar to help cut down on the stress of moving them.

    sounds like they are only freshly spawned or at the most a week or 2 old......and I agree with diggly...just about every fish will eat fry of any kind..including the parents of such fry.....if you have a square guppy, she hasnt spawned yet or maybe she is in the process of doing so
