newbie and new fish grandma

Hi all, don't know if I'm posting in the right place. I have started a guppy aquarium and after a few tragic deaths, I think I have nailed it. I've had 3 sets of fry. First ones caught me by surprise and in my panic I moved them all and killed them. Second set again I missed but picked up 2 from the filter. Third set I ummed and aahed about moving mum and missed them again but have caught 3. So I have 5 gorgeous little fry babies swimming around in a modified lettuce container clipped on the side of the tank. I'm a very proud grandma right now. My kids and hubby think I'm crazy, but I'm having a ball.

Congrats on the fry The good news is guppies will give you more practice

I'm the same, I keep mollies really just for the few fry that come in every so often.

Hi there, I'm also a guppy fanatic now. I've had two sets of fry so far, the first lot was a total of 3, saved two (about two months old now) the other little guy i couldn't reach before the others got to him The second lot, i missed the birthing by about an hour and when I realized there was just five. So a total of 7 guppy fry live happily in their own small tank now. Click image for larger version
