if he has some plants or multiple hiding spots he won't need a breeder box if he removes the females. Obviously it would be a lot easier but i guess its personal preference.

Actually the problem is I probably wont be able to get to my lfs in time... and I would rather spend my money on the one I mentioned, that automatically separates parents from fry. But it would take a few days to ship, so I think it will be too late by then.

Ok. I might be at school when it happens though. I hope a lot of them survive if that happens!

This won't be the last time they breed so i'd go ahead and order it anyway.

The black spots they develop are the fry eyes.

I have the Penn Plax Aqua Nursery and I don't like it. It has terrible circulation, the fry have never gotten to the seperate compartment and get stuck in the tube. I went out and bought a $ 3.99 breeders net and it works MUCH better then my $ 30 (with shipping) Penn Plax Aqua Nursery.

when she gets a square stomach she will give birth sometime that day or the next day. You also have very pretty guppies.

Well no, but its the first time I will have had a whole batch of fry. I had three fry from my life science guppy tank in school, which by the way, was managed correctly and not overstocked. My teacher even put five females with one male! Lol. I can't get any pictures until tomorrow... I am at my dads house today.
