Red Fancy Guppy Dropped Babies

At the fish auction that we went to a few weeks ago, we won a bag with Red Fancy Guppies in it that was 3 pregnant females, 4 males (1 is a snakeskin) and 11 fry from 3 different batches.

Well, wed. night we got our first batch of new fry between 6 & 8 pm. I went to feed our fish when we got home and as soon as I dropped the food in the gups tank, a bunch of fry appeared from the various hiding spots i'd setup in the tank (mostly from the floating grass/plant decor things we'd gotten for the fry). I took out about 2 dozen then and 1 today that got dropped either yesterday or today. They look very healthy and obviously have had a good appetite since almost right after being dropped. ;D

Excellent.

Let me know when they get big enough to ship.
I have not been real impressed with the red's I have seen regionally.

The 4 adult males that we have are in the attached pics. we're only planning to keep 1 of the males. 4 of the fry are pretty good sized and much bigger than the other 7 fry that came with the adults.

Excellent.

our red snakeskin is the clown of the bunch, and the trickiest to catch!

well be ready
if you get a pair you'll probably get a hundred more
my grandpas got over seventy five fry from one mother that have reached adulthood
weve actually gotten one batch of fry from a pair already
about 3 days old

with 3 pregnant females and an average drop of 25-30, we expect around 80 per month.

I love guppies, they are so cute. I have 1 male and 2 famales. the male is blue and green. and the females are red and yellow.

one of my guppies are pregnant and I can't wait until she has her first batch. I'll post pics when she gives birth.

cool.. if you can, get some of the "guppy grass" that floats at the top (real or fake) as i've found our guppy fry mostly swim into that for safety until we can rescue them from the adults. be ready with powdered food and maybe a baby brine shrimp hatchery to feed them every 4x a day.. hikarI first bites or better yet, omega one veggie flakes & nutrafin livebearer flakes put into a baggie and crushed into powder are good for feeding them.. boiled egg yolks crushed into powder is good too, but real messy. we lost 2 fry, 1 due to my mistake, but have 62 in 3 tanks now.
