the fry had their first taste of really live food today, cut up black worms. gobbled them right up. I'm seeing quite a bit of blue iridescence on some of the fry, hoping they will color up and actually /be/ blue. XD at least one~crosses fingers~

I'm sure they exist somewhere, but it's to early to tell on my fry.
I had a mass die off in my adult tank, all my females except one are gone. The one left is in her own tank for now and my adult tank is now all males until these fry grow up.
I'm assuming one female died and it just caused a chain reaction of males stressing the rest.
I'm not going to buy anymore,just replace them with females from the fry tank when they're bigger.
Update fry wise, all are healthy and doing fine.
I did find one who has a pretty bad dip in his spine but he swims and eats with the rest so I'm going to let him live. He's not going in the main tank though, don't want him reproducing, so I may need to rehome him to someone with an all male tank.
Seems death brings with it new life,
that pregnant female just dropped 15 or so fry(looks like she may drop more).
The largest of my older fry are going in my 20 with the adults, new borns will be going into the ten with the other fry(I've been told they should be fine, but I am expecting a couple losses simply from moving them so soon after birth, but the female needs her own tank for now.
I'm thinking of doing 100% in the morning(or a 90%...or 2 50s...not sure with the new fry).
Also, the halfblack boys I got from petsmart?
I'm thinking they're those dwarf panda you seen on aquabid(though, less healthy petstore quality versions). They're a lot smaller than my 'cobra' and they're tails are more round than the other fancy guppies out here.

New fry are growing well,no losses that I've found yet.
They like to rest on the heater, so cute and tiny~
Plants from peachii should be here tomorrow.
Thinking I'll put most of the floaters in the main tank/with the larger fry, and about half the bacopa Carolinia.
Small fry will get Wisteria and some hornwort.
Rest of the plants are going in the ten gallon until I figure out how I want to arrange them more permanently.
Anyone know anybody who might be willing to adopt a couple guppies with spine issues? They eat/swim fine.
If I knew my Betta's wouldn't eat them, I'd say that I'd love them! But I'm too fearful my boy's and girl's will just make a snack out of them >.< I may know a person who might want some though, let me check.
I'd be very interested, but the main concern for me is how slow do they swim? And any idea on shipping? Ragnarok is very friendly until they go near his leaves and then he can nip at others. He plays nice until then though.
