I have guppies galore :P(they were my first fish of my own)
I started with 2 male and 2 female adult guppies...ended up with more than 50 fry.
Most of the fry have grown, had babies of there own, and died now.
I still have a 10 gal tank full of guppies. My littlest bro raised 5 guppy fry that i gave to him and they recently have had guppy fry of there own.
They are'nt called the million fish for nothin lol
If you want fry just buy a fat female guppy that wen sold was kept with male guppies. Chances are she is pregnant and will drop fry in a couple of weeks to a month.

guppies are very easy to breed and have fry every 22-43 days. If you have alot of plants and hiding spots the guppies will more than likely survive. Also female guppies can store sperm, and can hold it for anywhere from 1-6 pregnancys. Very easy to care for, however very inbred and not so good for the fish! An outcross every now and then helps

Earthworms? or Nightcrawlers?
would they be good for conditioning (if i cut them up small enough) besides frozen bloodworm.(dont have a store that sells frozen bloodworms and to order them offline isnt going to work)
If i can use Earthworms or Nightcrawlers it would be cheap and easy to get.

Was just wondering because i saw on a website that you could feed your betta earthworms or nightcrawlers.

you can feed them that if you would like but keep i mind that you do have a chance of passing on disease because it is not only live food but is a non-sterilized live food

You CAN use those but just keep in mind that you do run the risk of parasites, people have done it have had no problem while others have had problems so just do it at your own discretion
