Congrats

When one of my guppie pairs bred, we had 19 survivors, and they are happily swimming amongst our 3 FW tanks.

That's awesome. He was the only survivor (I think the others were gobbled up before I knew it).

Yeah, even with a breeding box, momma still got to most of them. My wife was calling me at work, freaking out that they were being eaten. She ran to the LFS to get a small nursery tank to save them...haha. And here I didn't think she liked my fish

There's a female betta in the tank. I think she gets a few before I know they are there. I've never seen it, but I'm assuming.
