Here are the baby guppies. Nothing too special really. This is actually my first two spawns ever!

Well I woke up to find about 30 more new fry in the main tank today. I was able to get about 12-15 out and put them into the fry tank with the other two spawns. This drop had white and yellow fry. Can't wait to see how they all turn out. I have about 50-60 fry total, between the 3 drops, in their own tank.

However, also up top floating around the fry this morning was one of the guppy mommies. She had no signs of disease or otherwise indication of anything wrong, but sadly she was dead by the time I saw her up there. I will need to get a male or two separated now because her death throws the balance off.

Thanks. So far so good. I've only lost one of the fry so far. It seems like it was a deformity of some type. I posted in this section with a pic.

I just saw your video of the Oscar fry. Good luck with them and keep posting updates!

Unfortunately, we had a moderate accident yesterday with the tank that sent the parents into panic mode and us into a frenzy to "decontaminate" the tank... I believe, in their attempts to protect the fry, they inadvertently swallowed the majority of them leaving only 5-6 survivors (out of 20-30), which we are not sure will survive, but are doing our best to help along (they have been removed from the main tank and are in their own "private" set up)....

Oh crap, what happened!? I hope everyone is okay - mother, father and babies that were left!

I know nothing at all about Oscar fry - are they self sufficient or do they need parental help to grow until a certain point?

Sorry to hear about this and I really hope you get things back to normal very soon!
