Wow they're all really pretty. I wonder if those other ones are pregnant or not. we shall see in a month or so if you do get little guppy babies or not. what size tank do you have them in?

Thanks! I was hoping for more colours, but they certainly have some personalities already! I have them in a 5 gallon, and any babies will go into my friend's empty ten gallon. They haven't figured out what to do with it, so they thought babies would be fun :) They came from a tank that was around 3g with about fifteen Guppies and a Betta :/ I was looking for colourful, but I couldn't leave them there like that.

How did 15 guppies fit in a 3gallon after a week old? o.o Let alone with a betta...poor babies.
------

Side note, I have a couple guppy fry who need to go to a loving adoptive home.
One has a pretty bad dip in his spine, another has a slight dip towards it's tail. Color wise both show some black right now, but they aren't done coloring.
Ages between two weeks(three weeks come this weekend) and 1 month(5 weeks come friday)
They're otherwise healthy, they keep up and avoid the filter with the rest.
If in Los Angeles they can be picked up from me at Union Station this coming weekend when I head down there, elsewhere in the US I can try shipping.
I've never shipped fish so there is no live arrival guarantee, but I can add more fry. I just ask you pay shipping.

I honestly have no clue :( And the lady didn't have a net so she scooped them with her hand... No wonder they're hiding from me :(

If I can't find/don't have a net I use my hand. If your gentle its fine and I can't see it as being any worse then netting them.

I've done it with my goldfish in the past, but she kept grabbing males instead of females and then putting them in and out of my bucket and she seemed to be very rough with them... It just seemed very stressful to the fish to me when she grabbed them.

So three out of my four girls are pregnant, and to me, this girl looks like she's ready to pop! Just want some opinions from you guys- I've got her in a little 0.5g QT floating in the 5g, as the babies will be transported to my friend's 10g when they're a couple of days old. Anyways, here's the girl:

Okay, so the Guppy I caught last night was NOT the super pregnant one. She had hidden herself behind the heater -_- I'll try and get her this afternoon.

I've got some new guppies to introduce a male and female with 2 babies:)
they were suppose to all be white finned but the male is the only white one,
the female is sky blue but I can't get a good picture of her because she hasn't settled in yet but for a female she does have lovely fins:) I'll upload a better photo of her when I get one
I was worried about the black spot on her tail at first but I think its just coloration. the white male's name is Shiro but I haven't named the others yet.

here they are:)

Oooh, they are adorable! I can't help but be curious about what the fry will look like.
