Question Feeding guppy fry to Bettas

How do you do it? I have the guppies, but how do I feed them to my Bettas?


Thanks!

Healthy livebearing fry are great food source for Bettas...gut load them first with quality foods and offer 1-2 when very small...this is a good way to cull deformed fry and to keep population in check.....

I am looking forward to trying this soon too. Hubby just got himself 3 females and 1 male guppy for his 20 gal and he has agreed that feeding some of the resulting fry to Harper is a good idea, the deformed ones anyway :)

I have a couple female guppy with a male guppy sharing a 14 gallon with a band of betta sororities. Assume they get eaten as they pop. Noticed a tiny guppy fry hiding atop the floating hornwort late one evening. I wager they have no chance of surviving to adulthood in my tank.

Some mornings I see a few of my females with plump tummys which can only mean one thing....
