fryfry
i reallly got guppy fry a few days ago but i have been so busy with school i havent had time to post this but i came home from church and one guppy was really skinny and i looked around and found 4 babies then i saw my bigges angel stuck in a cave on my wall so i got the 4 babies and stuck them in a breeding box then took me a half hour to get my angel out of the cave  i think he was going after one of the babies and got stuck and had to flip him and the cave upside down and push on him real hard to get out now he is missing about and inch of scales on his top he seems to be doing ok though but i learned my lesson dont have things that fish can get stuck on when you have guppy fry and of course i have taken all the caves out

From what I have read, the female has a batch of fry, and after that fry has been given birth too, the NEXT batch are gestating and 4 weeks later a whole new batch is birthed. THEN it repeats itself up to 4 times from one breeding! Amazing! That's why after your fish gives birth to a batch of up to 60 fry at once (so I've read), they are still looking pregnant, it's because of all of the different stages of fertilized eggs that are still gestating! ALL FROM ONE MATING! LOL!
