Guppies

Have 1m/3f it looks like all 3f are prego and one dropped sometime today. I have a 55g tank with plenty of hiding places but I have only been able to find 2 fry. Where could the rest have gone. Are they just hiding from me or. Could they have all been eaten. Also my male seems to be putting a lot of pressure on my females to mate. Should I get more females to take some of the pressure off them?

They are pretty good at hiding so some maybe left in there. It's likely a lot of them have been eaten though.

So I tried to put my 3rd female in a breeder net and she went crazy. I was so worried about stressing her that I just went ahead and released her back into the main tank. Guess I'll just take my chances.
