Recommended Posts

alright one of my female guppies had 14 babies today around 12:00pm

i got a few questions:

1 What to feed the fry?

2 What is the sale size?

3 Is a 2ft x 30 x 30 big enough for grow out?

4 Is there anyway to get a guppy to produce more fry

I will answer you questions one at a time !

1/ newly hatched or frozen - finely powdered flake - or Wardley's livebearer liqifry - Liquifry or similar is the easiest but live baby brine shrimp is best.

2/ this one Varies by who wants to buy them but about 3/4 grown .

3/ For 14 fry easily - still do you waterchanges though !

4/ Yes Feed them lots of live food - mozzie wrigglers , live brine shrimp , even frozen bloodworms - not every feed still feed flake as a staple . Keep the tank clean - very clean and do regular water changes - That way they grow bigger healthier an produce more fry - numbers between 100 and 150 are not unheard of !

To get larger batches from females, keep them virgin for 3-4 months, till they get some size on them, then introduce males. Broods are significantly larger. Once they start breeding they tend to put all their energy into the developing young, to the expense of growth.

Cheers
