Um yes Actualy. It's prefered but you don't have to do this. It's usualy beter to raise the babies in a separate tank that has the heat on 80-83 degrees ferenhiet. This raises their metabolism and makes them grow faster. It worked wonders on my fish, but then again I had swordtails. But the mesh idea is fine, just remember to have a lot of hiding spaces so she doesn't eat them all. Wat are you going to feed them?

Yea that sounds good. I used crushed flakes. So are you looking into breeding guppies? It's an interesting hobby, rewarding I'd say

It's legal. If its her first time she can get up to 85 I think, but some of them will die before they are adults. You could sell them. I'm giving some of mine away but keeping some to breed with.
