Guppy fry help please!!!!!!

I am excepecting more guppy fry. Last time I isolated the female and she laid roughly 30 fry. 20 survived. I have begun research and it led me to the tempature. What is a good temp for the fry? My tank is at 81 defrees right now.

No matter what, don't make any drastic changes. Guppies are quite hardy, but not invincible.

If it is a community tank, you can try to isolate the female. If there are only other guppies in there, don't put her through that stress.

Temperature? Anything between 75*F and 82*F should be tolerable.

Yes, do not make any big changes in the temperature. My tank is set to 77 and they are fine. If they were born healthy then keep them at the same temp.

The warmer the temperature the faster they grow. Secrets, not really, change the water often without sucking them up, feed protein rich food like fry bites by hikari or Baby brine shrimp. Aquarium salt. It dosent really matter, like they said no sudden drastic temperature changes but that goes for all fish. I usually keep my guppy fry between 78-82 F. They can live and grow in water as cool as 72, but they will grow slower (although live longer) out of curiosity, what killed the 10 fry before? I could help you with that too if It was a disease.
