Just noticed this morning that two of my other guppy girls look like they're getting ready to drop more fry.... That means all of them came to me preggers... I guess I got the deal of the day on that one.

Good Thing Petco has the 1$ a gallon sale going. Going to need a 55 for all the guppies.

I think guppy females can retain semen from the male for several months, not needing a male to get pregnant again. I wouldn't be surprised if all your females were pregnant when you bought them.

Which reminds me, I need to pick up a 40b before the sale ends.

Yeah. 1 time is good for up to 3 spawning. Yay...

I'm wanting a few 40's myself. Now I've just got to convince my wife it's ok. :P

Picked up my glass hoods for the 38g... they work better than nothing, which I'm grateful for.

Found one of my balas... think he got zapped by one of the leaf fish. Tried to take the other one out, and he just kept swimming... nature must take it's course then, I'm not about to rip up all of those plants to get him. He was still alive this morning, so I have hope.

Reseated my left hand sword this morning... again. Put a rock on the substrate this time so it wouldn't take off anymore. I'm hoping that works. Or works well enough anyway.



PROOF THINGS SWIM! One of my clown loaches having a good time.

You lucky Americans. Man, these are the moments when I really wish I lived in the States. Wait nevermind, we have poutine Kidding, the $1/gallon sale sounds great, especially compared to the tanks I see for hundreds of $. Lucky you!

They stopped it on anything bigger than a 55. I would be all over a 150 if not. As it is were probably picking up a 55, 40, an a 20L. I may sneak another 40 in and do a double decker stand for them. We've already got a 30 hex and a 15 show, not to mention the numerous 10's. But the bettas will likely get a 10 each and I'll get to play with the others.

Argh, found a dead fry caught in the stocking wrapped around the filter.

I have to answer this question today..

1. Moved my single, yes - one (1), surviving fry into the small tank (I did only ever see 3)
2. Moved all other guppies back into my big tank.. Including what looks like partially (?) pregnant ones.. Now the males are chasing the females again. One of the females has a torn fin. she's been stressed because I was holding her in the breeding tank for the last 2 days - but, no more fry. So I've taken her out and rejoined her with the "gang".
Cleaned tank, removed moss and basically now hope that I haven't stressed my fishies to death... Added stress coat.
