I got about 17 guppy fry in a breeder tank, its the kind that hangs outside the tank. Tips on taking care and cleaning etc? Any tips or advice would be appreciated.

Also there are about 4 gyppy fry in the main tank with 2 guppys (female) they seem to be surviving pretty well. How can I feed them without the parents eating it first?

Thanks.

My best advice is to use airline tubing as a siphon to clean the breeder box, and clean often! Clean, warm water helps improve growth rates.

Now for the ones inside the main tank, you might just want to feed a bit more than normal and clean the left overs out as soon as you see the fry are done eating

Thanks how often should I clean? And I don't think I have any extra air line tubing , because im using it for the sort of filter in the breeder tank. Can I remove it use it to clean then put it back on? Or should I cut a part of it off?

I have the same breeding box ur talking about. I use a turkey baster and change 20-30% of the water a day. Only that because the air pump puts water into the box and it trickles out...and for me I always leave it running

To feed them, I use Hakari First Bites. I find it better and less messy than crushed flakes...
