Guppies

Hello there all.
I have a 30ltr tank with 2 female and 1 guppies in it.
Got the fish on Saturday and noticed that when the chap at Dobbies gave me them, that there where 5 fry in the bag also.
Large fish dont seem to bother with them.
Im now wondering how often i will have to do a water change ?
Pls help!!

Get a API master kit, and test the water once every two weeks.

Never heard of a 8 gallon tank. Fry are best grown out in a seperate ten gallon tank kept warm 25 degrees with some salt and frequent small meals and water changes and a spoinge filter. 3 ten gallon tanks. One for baby fry. One for growing out males and one for growing out females. They should be seperated at one month. At 3-4 months you can give the extras to pet shop and put the ones that you want color back into main tank.
