Guppy Breeding?

Okay so i have 3 females and 4 males i think two maybe all 3 are pregnant, i have a heavily planted tank two organic 5 synthetic, plus a decent sized shipwreck and two log orniments in a 3ft community tank.
I keep the tank temp at 26 degrees celcius and pH of 7.0-7.2
Nitrite is at 40
And nitrate is 0

I'd add some java moss cuz the fry like to hang out in it to hide and eat microorganisms.

If your nitrite is 40, I think your fish would be dead. Is your nitrate 40?

No matter what, I would do a water change. Fry don't like anything but 0s for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.

I have fake low bushy plants in my tank - if any babies are born in the tank I usually get a few survivors.

If you can't find moss, low bushy plants, like Robynleigh said, work well too. The more hiding spots, the more fry that survive.

I've set up a hollow log with plants covering it so only the fry can get through

That sounds good. In no time your tank will be overrun with guppies!

okay so in the middle is a hollow log, there is one live plant at the back entrance for them to nibble on whatevers living in there and the rest are just synthetic for hiding in
