Veggiegirl- That's pretty much what they're there for. Otherwise, we'd be up to our eyeballs in baby guppies! However, I did give them some extra cover, so they have a little bit of a better chance to make it to adulthood.

Aemaki- My common girls always give me really small drops. There's only 5-6 that I've counted so far. But Mike has 4-5 girls that are about to drop, and so far Georgia holds the record here with 32 gupps in a single litter, and that was right after we got her. She's had a couple of smaller drops since.

My new Guppy is expecting. This will be my first experience, but I already have her in a 2 gallon tank until she births them and then she goes in the 29 gallon. I can't wait to see how many she has. She is a huge Guppy.

Sometimes the biggest ones will give you the smallest drops! These guys' mom is a big girl on a good day, and with her pregnancy, she looked like she was going to explode! lol

is it considered responsible fishkeeping to stock a large tank with 5-6 mixed gender guppies and let them build a population? i've just loved the idea of letting them come up with their own tail type and color combinations and let the end result be a surprise.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

if you mix the varieties enough, they eventually revert to wild type. That's where a portion of "Common" guppies come from. It would be pretty to see the color and pattern combinations you'd get before they got that far though!

Later I'll have to post pictures of my common males, and my mixed fancy male.

I let my guppies roamfree with bettas( and cover). If it weren't for the freak pleco eating adults, I would have an army to deal with!
