My guppy had babies now just down to a baby :(

So yesterday came home to 5 frys but had to go back out arrived home a couple of hours later to 4 missing they were still left In the breeder box with he mum but the "v" was still in the breeder box so I'm just assuming the other fish have sucked them out from underneath through the little whole ( think the breeder box is completely useless if that was the case) so here's my little guy well could turn out to be a female who knows lool Click image for larger version

Awe. Sorry about that. I got home yesterday from school, and found 3 fry. And saw the mom trying to eat one of them. Went to the store, and when I came home, I saw the fry dead ):

She can hold them even until the next birth. Those fry in her could be half developed and she could give birth to them in a few weeks.

You should give the fry a bit of Java Moss to hide in, even in the box. So they aren't so easy to pick off and also for less stress.

My female guppy looked close to bursting so put her in a fry net checked on her half an hour later to a net full off fry and witnessed the mother eating 1, so removed her straight away and haven't lost 1 since. Think there is 38 left.Click image for larger version
