Record Guppies Growth As A New Breeder. Black Moscow Guppies.

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to share my Black Moscow guppies fry that has been born on 29.05.2018 meaning that they are 18 days old as of writing. Today I was already able to separate the males and females and I measured the fry at an average of 2cm.

    Prior to starting my guppies breeding hobby I have read countless of forum posts and articles online about guppies and their fry. The general growth rate is somewhat around 1.2cm at 2 weeks and somewhere around at least 1 month to be able to identify male and female.

    I am wondering whether or not I have super guppies;)... Anyway, I have been feeding them live brine shrimp from day one and they are living outside in a 5 gallon/20 liter water-lilies pot.

    I also think it is worth to mentioned that these little fry actually had the ich disease which has been detected just 4 days after their birth but has been treated and not spotted again at 10 days old.

    Here some pictures. I hope you all enjoy it.

    Welcome FishNL, looks like they like the BBS, they should eat crushed up flake food also.

    Thanks guys, yea I started feeding them some crushed flakes about a week ago but only as dessert. Their main course is still 5x brine shrimp a day.. they go crazy for it..

    Do any of you perhaps have some growth charts for reference? I am quite curious in which percentile they would fall.
