Oh, man, what a bummer! So sorry! Didn't know you had a puffer in with your guppies--puffers are actually voracious little predator fish, trapped in cute, cartoon like bodies. A puffer can even shred an angelfish (a cichlid!) in less than a day, all the while looking so sweet and innocent. If your guppies had spawned, the fry would have become delightful little fast food snacks for mr. puffer. This had been a tough learning experience, but I suspect something new is just around the corner; maybe even something better! A big ole 29 gal. tank has so many possibilities!

Ha, is he still alive? (the one that got sucked up?

I have a net breeder, so when my molly had babies I put all 15 babies in there. Only 4 of them survived, and you don't want to hear about what happened to the first spawn.
