I have 1 guppy that always gives birth and 7 guppy fry.

1. Well...guppies basically multiply....so they give birth like...every minute
2. I put my baby guppies in a small 1/2 a gallon tank.
2. I used to feed them egg yolk. Yes, its full in nutrition...so fish can eat it too! And now since their like 4 weeks old, I feed them Omega One but make the flakes powerdery. Also, I heard Hikari isn't doing so well...

Hope that helped!



I can't believe you're gone, Tom.

Diablo, thanks. I just wish I knew what killed the cories. They literally just tipped over and died. Heart attacks maybe?

BlueBettaFish, yes that helps tremendously! When my remaining guppies give birth again, can I PM you for advice?

They give birth every 3-4 weeks, even if there is no male impregnating them.. They can store sperm for six months at a time. :/ So you're going to be overrun with them sooner or later lol! I don't bother with separate pellets/ flakes.. I give them powdered pllets that the parents eat or freeze dried daphnia. :)
Daphnia clouds up water so if you want to use it, feed sparingly.. I hopes I helps!

I remember when I was a kid my parents got me and my siblings a five gallon, and we put in a snail and 2 guppies. Those guppies bred like crazy, and we didn't do anything for the babies, just left them. But by the time all of them died in an accident, we must have had 30 guppies in that thing

Thanks Punki. I'm thinking the poor little fry had a disease or was weak from having a weak momma. :/ It never swam around, just sat there on the bottom breathing hard. I'm just glad Old Man's fry are doing so well, Punki.

Fighter, Diablo, thanks, the idea of being overrun with guppies is . . . *gulp*

Ya, it was pretty disturbing, later my brother got this really small Pleco( I know, it's overstocked, but I'm the oldest of my siblings and I was four at the time) and the guppies cross breezed with the pleco so we had sucker guppies O_o I know that sounds impossible, but I swear to god it happened

No way. I did not think guppies would breed with a pleco. That sounds disturbingly awesome.

I barely believe it now, but I remember only one survived. I wouldn't try it, cause it probably was extremely genetically unstable, and I'm suprised it didn't explode or something
