guppies are fun but they get quite repetitive and boring after some time

yea i know whatcha meen but i love how they breed
this is exactly how my two females look like.they look both the same.
i think i can see an eye in one of my females but im not sure if it is an eye. the rest is a redish orange gravid spot in my female.

oh i hope i get one like that but im not one of those breeders who cares about what color or trait the guppy has i just take em as they come. oh and i dont know if i said this today my swordtail gave birth this morning!! i caught two of the fry i only saw.i saw a tiger barb actually eat one i cried. but then when i got home from school my moms bf told me that they died :(. i was so sad i didnt even take a picture. it was like 10 minutes before i had to go to school UGH! i even fed them! but anyway i hope this doesnt happen to my guppies! i got fancy ones im trying to find picture of them online cause idk how to post it on here.

I'm sorry about your fry but that's just natural for the other fish to eat them.

yea im not all that sad about it becauseee I HAVE MY OWN GUPPIES!! i just cant get over it!! if i find anymore in the big tank it is going to my tank upstair in the breeding space. i hope that my females give birth 15 days apart so then i can expect fry in 15 days lol but thatll be to many.

if you seperated the fry from the tank which i think thats what you said? you seperated 2 fry, then they would not have died the fry are very hardy, so if you seperated them either someone lied to you or something went totally wrong! because any livebears fry are very hardy with the exception of sometimes black mollies. but congrats on the guppies good luck with breeding them its quite easy, they will breed every 22-40 days depending on temp and other factors, but the main one being temp. Also when they have bred enough you'll get good at knowing when they will breed again so you can get all the fry next time. Also when you get good and you start moving fry to the breeding box or whatever you use, catch the mothers with a cup full of water not with a net because catchingher with a net and taking her out of the water can stress the guppies, and thus cause a miscarriage. Good luck with your guppies

Yup like i said i use to breed show guppies, and you wanted as many fry as possible becasue you had to cull alot that were not up to standards. so how did they die in the net then?
