I'm hoping my current batch has a few leopard print guppies in it

Anybody heard of guppy/guppy fry eating brown algae, there is one tiny patch of brown algae and the fry seems to be picking and eating it??

Guppies eat small amounts of algae, although not a substantial amount, they appreciate it as a snack. My guppies do the same thing, especially the younger ones

I checked out my fry and it seems like one of my males might be a leopard skin

Or at least I think it might be a male, one of the spots is covering the gravid spot if there is

My juvie male guppy has a bright red tail and dorsal, a pair of red stripes above and behind his eye about 4 mm long, and a silver snakeskin pattern covering his body. He got the colors from THREE males- a full red, a half red with jagged lightning shaped stripes behind and above his eye, and a yellow variegated snakeskin- or so I think

This one looks male to me (not sure if this is the guppy in question, but I hope it helps) I've gotten some fry with yellow and black tails!

I'm not sure if you can see them, but I'm hoping to get rid of them this week or the next. If anyone wants them, tell me, otherwise they're being fed to my friends turtles, because I have other fish I want to buy and the fry would make my tank overstocked (there's like 18-25 of them)

Whats your water change schedule? It would be hard to keep up with so many guppies lol! The dwarf gourami will love the 20.

Honey sunset is a dwarf species. You should be fine for now.

The ones I know of are honey sunset, powder blue, and the most common, the orange and blue striped. I think there is also one called fire or something but it might be the same as honey sunset.
