Hello early...

If you bought a female, you can just about bet the farm she'll have fry at some point in the next month. Livebearing fish are typically raised together. This way they have a lot of little ones and the fish farms make more money.

Keep the tank water extremely clean and add some floating plants. Tanks 30 gallons and smaller need half the water changed every week. The larger tanks can usually go a couple of weeks between the 50 percent water changes. Smaller water changes aren't worth the effort and don't do much to keep a stable water chemistry. If you get the gear out to change the water, then change a lot. The fish and plants will appreciate it.

I have my hands full with premature mosquito fish fry11 of them:

I put them in this container after I removed the fancy guppies:

they are in the 10g at 82f and they have an air stone in there to keep good aeration. what happened was the temp got to 86f and so one of my females dropped. I got everything to normal now. whish me luck XD.

yea sorry I posted then internet stopped working and then I had reposted to find out that it went through XD. they are premature because they still have a large yolk sac so I have to recreate the womb basically for them. which I have done before a long time ago XD. but no worries.

well 11 died but she still gave birth to more even with a lower temp I think its cause it was her first batch because it was just her. crossing fins that my redesign of the womb works.

yea its just weird I'm so use to corries and egg layers I've lost my touch with live bearers XD. and with the fancies I can just let them be cause they don't eat all the fry. and I have plenty of hiding spots but with the mosquito fish the males are young and harass the females that's why I separated them. and it was over night that the temp went up and today being hot didn't help either.
