Just had babies while at work.

One of my two pregnant guppies had fry while at work. She was the smaller of the two as well. She didn't get boxie either. She looked like she had another week or two and when I get home her belly is flat as a board so I knew she had to have birthed. Found two so far that survived. Her belly wasn't very big so I doubt she had that many anyways. Still, pretty cool
What is the best food to feed them? I would like some food that falls to the bottom for those that don't venture to the top of the tank. Thanks

Wait! Found another hiding in the grass. Click image for larger version

Live brine shrimp is best, but the food golden pearls works very well. You can use crushed flake food but they will grow very slowly and may end up a snack for some other fish.

My guppy fry really like the Hikari First Bites. It slowly sinks so they can catch it.

Lol. Always got to have that one person to make fish perverted... -.-


So it's confirmed I have 4 fry and I sadly couldn't get to a 5th before the mom ate it.

The other mom should birth sometime this week.

They're in good hands! I use instant brine shrimp for my Endler fry. They love it! I get it off Amazon.com.

Good luck!

So is this stuff like decapsulated brine shrimp eggs? Do the fry grow as well with this compared to bbs?

I have noticed growth that is better than flake-fed fry. Also, a little of this goes a long way. The adults enjoy it too.

Quick update.

Found a few more hiding in the grass.

Now have 7 total.

Unfortunately tonight the mother started looking bad at 7PM. She deteriorated and was belly up by 9PM. Sad, but I think the birth may have been too much for her. But, her babies live on.
