Here is my little guppy fry that was accidently given to me from the LFS. He must have been dropped days before because he was so small.

Here is my little guppy fry that was given to me on accident by the LFS. He must have been dropped days before I got him because he was tiny. Now has taken off in my 10g.

Let's see, how did I achieve this? I put a male krib and a female krib in my tank, that's how.....

There were over 250 in this batch. The parents ate them all..... little piggies that they are.

I don't have the kribs any longer. I wanted to do something different with my community, make it more peaceful, so they went to the lfs, both parents and the fry that I had grown out to 5 months.

Actually, I was lucky, both male and female (adult) were gorgeous and colored up beautifully in spawning mode.

I'm just having a hard time keeping them alive. The first batch was eaten. The second batch I had 100s of wigglers but only a few to the free swimming stage, and then they died. This third batch not many of the eggs got fertilized so I only have a few about to become free swimming, not expecting any of them to survive.

what about putting them in a breeder tub box thing so they can keep closer for warmth and get to food much quicker?

I still have the kuhli loaches, amano shrimp and rummynose tetras that I had with the kribs, and I also now have white cloud mountain minnows, ghost shrimp, mystery snails, black moscow guppies and creamsicle mollys.

I don't miss the kribs really. It was a lot of fun being a fish "grandma" for the first time, but when they start shooting out 250 fry at a time, it gets overwhelming. I wanted a peaceful community tank, not a maternity ward.

Mine were probably 9 months old or so. Got them home from the store. Within a few days, the female knew she'd met the man of her dreams..... and so it begins.

I still have the parents, who are currently working on (I think) their 16th spawn and I kept 2 females from the first spawn.

My LFS takes them since they are raised in the same water conditions as what they have at the store. They have trouble getting the shipped ones to survive.
