Lost all my fry today after transferring them I to a new tank last night. Not sure what happened. Used water and gravel from the tank that were previously in.

I'm sorry to here that, it seems v strange they would die so soon after transfer? As we kniw Guppies breed like wildfire so won't be long until your next batch!

Your tank looks great! I'm still trying to convince my wife to let me get another tank. I was barely able to get the one gallon for fry.

Out of the two batches of fry I had(R.I.P.) two of them were born almost completely colored. Is this normal?

I've never known fry to be born with colour? They are usually that light gray colour,

I thought they were unique... Hopefully I'll have more unique fry in the batches to come.

I wish I could give you some of mine the kitchen tank is only 27ltrs and I think I counted 13 fry and 4 adults! There's only 1 mature female she's like a breeding machine!!

No worries! I think my female has finally gotten into a groove I just need a couple more females to keep the make preoccupied.

Is inbreeding a giant no no, or is it something that can happen to an extent? I know that obviously too much will cause some complications and disease.

I have inter bred its usually ok for about 3 or 4 generations, anything after that you risk deformity such as bent tail spine, I've had a few if these - I cull them as soon as I see them as it effects the way they swim and effects the overall look of the tank bent fish struggling to swim in a straight line,
This caption and pic should help :-

The only real deformity that I can think of is a spinal one and I think it is common practice to eliminate fry with a spinal deformity. With the over breeding, traits would change much in the way they would if you were line breeding for specific traits such as fin length or color.

Whoa! That looks painful.... Ok I was so worried about my fry before they past! I was literally trying to sex them as soon as I could to prevent any problems. This next round I'm not going to worry as much lol. Hopefully I'll be able to get more then just 5 as well. Thanks for the info! It was a lot of help

Will keep posted on any new fry in the future.

So your saying because I transfered them out of water they may have been shocked? That actually makes some sense. Would certainly explain the problem I had at least. Thanks! I will give this process a try with the next batch.

I hope it helps. I also do that for the pregnant mamas so they don't abort the fry.
