Hey, guys! My friend had two guppies and they were both supposed to be males, but one was a female and one was a male. They had fry, and she wanted to get out of the hobby and give away her fish. She actually didn't feed them and hated them. So, she gave me the one adult left(One died. Is it normal for the male to kill the female?) and she was pretty sure it was the male. She also gave me three of the fry. The three fry will be kept in a tank of their own and I want to introduce the adult into my 15 gall. If my signature is still messed up (I changed it on one computer and it didn't change on the other) then Sir Bubbles and all of the ghost shrimp have died. The snails are now in the 15 gall. Would it be okay to introduce the adult into my big tank? If so, how should I introduce him? Thanks in advance!
Omg. The adult I got is really a female and she is VERY PREGNANT!!! I did some extra research just to make sure that she was a he and she isn't a he! She is in a two gallon bowl with the three fry. I'll be posting pics of her soon!
Does anyone have any experience with raising guppy fry? I really need help and I just took the fish because my friend was mistreating them and I do really want them but I need some advise. Should I take the three little ones out of the tank because mom is pregnant? Is mom even pregnant at all? Is the tank too small? Should I be worried about anything else? Please help!
Get a 5-10gal and a heater with maybe a small filter, sponge would be good, and some floating plants and they'll be happy. I've got six males in a ten with that and they seem to like it. ... When they're not harassing each other, lol. But they seem to have calmed down.
