    Dear who ever is reading,

    I removed my mother Guppy from the breeder box as she ate all her fry which lead me to come to the conclusion that I do not like breeder boxes.

    As I removed her from the tank I noticed there were two fry at the back of the tank that looked to be over a week old as they were slightly bigger and had developed some colour to them as opposed to newborn fry who are pretty much colourless.

    I was so busy concentrating on the one pregnant Guppy that I failed to notice that one of the others had given birth.

    Do you think there is likely to be more than 2 surviving fry hiding in places that I obviously can’t see as I failed to notice them for a while?

    Thanks in advance

    There is a chance. I know my guppies, betta, and shrimp (maybe the shrimp idk) ate all of my guppy fry but one lone survivor. The one lone survivor escaped the breeder net today and idk where it is but it’s about 2 weeks old so I think it might be fine. Look around your tank, specifically the live plants. They could be there.

    It's very likely you have tons of fry swimming around the tank. What does your tank look like? Any plants? If you have a lot of moss and other plants, that's the first place frys go for safety.
