I've got about 30 myself, with another female in the trap ready to drop! Why do you breed them?

Would you be willing to post the water parameters (as detailed as you're willing)? I'm having a heck of a time getting mine to drop their fry.
Ammonia 0 nitrite 0 nitrate 20 Ph 7.6-7.8

They have peice of driftwood coved in java moss, oak leaf water sprite planted and floating. As for foods i use Guppy flake, earthworm, Decapsuated brine shirmp egg, Blood worms, Alge wafers From kensfish.com, and Blackgold, pro gro fry, pro gro(not as fine a fry) from UncleRick on aquabid. For live food mirco worms. I feed 2x a day both differnt foods. I get fry every month. When did you female last dorp?

That's the thing, as far as I know, they haven't. Some of them were in an aquarium that had a couple of fish that would likely have eaten fry, so it's quite possible that they went through some pregnancies. They are all now in a separate tank, and I have not seen a single fry. There is Java moss for hiding, no ammonia or nitrites, nitrates are less than 20. They're not getting as varied a diet as yours, but many people get fry with Tetra flakes, and my guppies' diet is a far cry better than Tetra. The filter has a sponge over it, so the fry shouldn't be getting sucked into the filter, either.
