I have owned many guppies for a couple of years. I'm not sure exactly how many because they sort of populated themselves without any help. Maybe around 50 at the most.

Not all guppies eat their fry. It's hard to tell in a community tank because other guppies or other fish may have been the killers, but if you separate the soon-to-be mothers, you'll find that some of them aren't baby killers. There also seems to be a higher fry count in a tank that's less populated. Either they choose not to eat their fry or there are simply less mouths present.

Well a day ago, we bought 3 black mollies. When we went to check up on them we saw this black thing curled up in like a ball. So we touched it with my net, and come to find out it was a baby black mollie. Now we don't know how to raise baby mollies, but we heard the best way to find out is PetSmart, the internet, or books.

the hifin lyretail swordtails are one of the most beautiful freshwater fish one can see!! also the regular swordtails are real fun and interesting to breed to various strains and colour combinations.... overall swordtails are my favourite livebearer!!

These fish are fun to have, and they have such cute babies. I have a pregnant female right now actually! They live along side my upside-down catfish, and three of my male guppies.

Hi There, Im quite new to fish keeping and have 18 guppys and 50 other fish in a 7ft tank which is fantastic to watch for several hours. Loads of plants and hiding places. Ive seen 5 baby guppys yesterday but today ive seen at least 30, so ive been out and bought a small tank for them and put them in. After 4 hours of catching them i counted 45, and now i think my platys are pregnant too...

hi today my pregnant female guppy (elizabeth) died due to complications during birth, not one fry lived. it was very sad. we squeezed out all the fry and checked. about 40 fry died. we put her in a breeding trap but that stressed her so much they all died.

i really like these fish!! i have a male and a female had 2 males but it got bullied and the other fish killed it and had an early dinner! My females stomach/tummy part is getting bigger. Im guessing she is pregnant.

I have 6 guppies and 2 of them are babies. The 2 babies name`s are
Bla bla and Naner. (I know, weird names.)The rest of my guppies are
adults, and their names are Blackberry, Orange, Painting, and Lightning.
My guppies are with my female betta Pleasant and a Zebra Danio named Stripey-stripe. At nightime I see them on the bottom of their
10 gallon sleeping, it`s so cute! My guppies are fine and I hope it stays that way, so I keep their tank clean and I keep them healthy.
