Well, we've had some new additions to the family this evening. Princess Peach the mama guppy has given birth to 24 live young...so far. The small fry seem to be doing well, especially since John ran out in a panic at 8:30 PM to buy some additional equipment from PetSmart. He couldn't stand the thought of the babies being eaten by the larger fish. He's such a softie.
Now we have a net nursery area and a free floating birthing tank that has a grate on the bottom so the babies fall through into their own area away and safe from mommy (sadly, yes, she would eat her own young, given the opportunity.)
It's getting mighty crowded in our 10 gallon tank. I hear talk of a 28 gallon tank John has his eye on.
Lord help me. Anyone want some guppies? Free?
