Since I was small I have had guppies. Now I've 4 males and 7 females in my 10 gallon tank. I recommend if your going to breed them you get many plants for your tank, they could be real plants(make sure they're not poisonous, becuse both the adults and the fry might eat them). The plants are for the fry to hide from the adults. If you decide to have plastic plants it is ok because they won't make the water so dirty.

I love my platys! My husband brought a couple home from the fish store one day as a gift after my current fish died. After a couple of weeks I noticed fry, but they disappeared! I added some hatching grass and a couple of more rocks and now they are reproducing very quickly! So much fun! I will be taking one pregnant female and one male to my work so the kids can watch the reproductive process in action! I cannot wait to see their reaction.

our swordtail had a baby and we only found one. It is about one and a half months old. When they are first born and for about 2-4 weeks theys hide and stay low to the bottom of the tank. It was the first fish we ever had that had a baby. They grow really fast. It takes a while to know if it is a female or a male.

I have 2 male guppies and 1 female guppy, boy do those males keep her busy! I suggest that if you are planning on getting guppies, think of getting either two males or two females, or watch out the babies will come!

I have had a community tank for about 1 year now. I have fancy guppies, mollys, platys, tetras, and several bottom feeders. I didn't realize until he was an adult that my 24K molly was a male and has been trying to mate with my guppy female. I was told that this is quite normal and that you can have mix breed fry. I wonder what the fry would look like.

I have had guppies for 2 years now. One of the females was pregnant when I bought her and didn't know it till there were fry in my tank. Unfortunately they were eaten by my black tetras. I have 4 females and 3 male guppies and all they do is mate. The females get no rest! They are very wonderful to watch and laugh at.

I have had 3 platys in my tank for about 1 year now. 2 females and 1 male. I've seen them mate but the females have never given birth. I don't know why this is. Recently, I lost one of the females and the male isn't interested in the other female as a mate but rather as a companion only.
