Unplanned guppy pregnancy
So I picked up three females and a male at the pet shop two days ago. The next morning, what do ya know, I have five fry in the tank! ( my 1.5 g heated at 76 with filter and 5 cherry shrimp who were also new) so my first instinct was to move the adults because they likely ate fry over night. I put them in my peaceful 10g. Anyways, I was planning on breeding, but not so soon. So I have the five fry in a tank with two fake plants and a little center piece with gravel on the floor. How should I clean the rank ?
For food I have been crushing up fish flakes or bottom feeder pellets into powder and feeding. I see them eating some. Is this ok?
Side issue, I mistakingly bought two guppies that look identical. Of course one is male and the other is female. Any tips to tell the difference?
