Guppy Fry - Day 3

All 13 fry still alive, swimming about looking healthy. All have grown. I have started feeding them 3 times a day on ground flakes, I've ordered some BBS which should be here in the next couple days so I'm really hoping this will boost their growth! All of them seem to be enjoying the flakes however I know this isn't ideal for fry.

It would be best to keep your updates to one thread so you don't bog up the breeding subforum.

Thanks.

That would be ideal, it would keep people more interested and would be much easier to follow.

Day 4-

I started feeding BBS to them today, not sure if it's too early they're only 4 days old:/ do you think it's too early? Anyway they're all doing fine, all are alive and healthy. Look to have gotten bigger, since day 1, haven't got any picture today will tomorrow! When do you think I should put them back into the main tank? I want to keep some of them! Thanks

They should be fine with BBS now. I would wait a month or so before you put them in the main tank. Once they can get food with the other fish, and are too large for the other fish to eat, they'll be good to go.

Okay great, thing is with the BBS it's hard to tell weather they've been eating it or not! Yeah okay, I only have guppies Platies and rummy nose tetras anyway nothing too large!

Try Hikari First Bites. Works great and lasts forever.

Depends on the tank mates but you can put them in after a month.

Sometimes I never fish out my fry and they never get eaten.
