    This amazing high definition video takes an up close look at the miracle of birth. You will see a gravid female guppy ( technically it's a female Orchid Endler ) giving birth to her 37 babies. There is lots of information, supported by video clips, that I am sure will amaze even the most jaded...

    One of the best ways to improve the growth rate of newborn fish is to give them ample supplies of healthy live foods. Microworms are a great choice for feeding small fry. These roundworms are a free-living (non-parasitic) nematode that is also known as the sour paste nematode. They are very easy...

    One of the easiest ways to improve the growth rate of newborn fish is to give them ample supplies of healthy live foods. However, most live food cultures can be difficult to keep going over the long run. One exception is the vinegar eel. These creatures are incredibly easy to raise and feed to...

    So, all but one of my fish caught ick and have died rapidly. We could not treat it fast it enough, though, because we have fry in the tank. The fry are starting to die now, though, but I know that you can't use ick treatment on the babies. Someone help me. I have a new, smaller tank that someone...

    Hi guys, I'm new to the form and fairly new to keeping fish. (9months) I had a biorb for a while which encountered lots of problems, heater broke, orb cracked, fish died. I now have an Aquanano square 55l tank housing two tetras from my original orb stock ( lone survivors these guys are...

    Hi I have 3 new additions to my tropical community tank: 2 month old leopard skin discus fry that I got from a friend. I've put them in my 55g with 7 zebra danios, 15 cardinal tetras,6 black neon tetras, 1 red dwarf gourami, 6 cory cats (pandas, punctatus & albino) and an electric blue ram. The...

    My male molly (black) and female platy (Black and Orange) mated. They had fry and I was wondering if they will gain color? It's been three weeks and I thought they would have gained color by now. Theyre pretty much a peach color. I bought a platy/molly mix fry and it was white. Do all...

    My platy gave birth to about 23 fry three weeks ago. They are in a breeding net inside my ten gallon tank (with my other fish, and where they were born). I am keeping them in the breeding net until my new tank is fully cycled. Anyways, the baby net they are staying in is getting pretty dirty...

    I am currently in college and I live in a dorm. A 10 gallon fish tank is all I am allowed to have so I decided to go for it. I cycled my tank and got three male guppies but one killed another and I took him back and the third one died so I decided to get something else. The guy at Petsmart...

    I have about 14 black and dalmatian molly's (thanks to ten 1-2 month old fry). We just had a massive power out due to Hurricane Irene, and I had to evac for the day - I was able to get a battery air pump, so everyone made it out okay. However now today I notice white spots on a lot of my fish...

    I had a pair of beautiful little platies when I had first started my 5 gallon tank, they stayed together for about a month, then the male suddenly died. About a month ( give or take) after his death, she gave birth to 6 little fry. Sadly, only three survived, but they are now very healthy happy...

    ...not counting fry deaths. pH steady at 8.4, water medium hard. Daily 20% water changes because of relatively new tank, plus I have fry. Temp is 78 F. Okay, so I bought 3 platys (one male, two round females) ten days ago. There was a persistent 0.25 of ammonia until I knocked it out May 9...

    Hello to all, brand new member, both to this forum and to breeding and raising fancy guppies. I got into this hobby when I was er...ahem...much younger than I currently am, and as that was the age we still wrote upon stone tablets, much of the info I thought I retained, was either forgotten or...

    First of all, it seems customary to tell you what I have: 20 gallon, planted, 15W purplish bulb that came with it 5 Brilliant Raspora 3 Marigold Wag Swordtails 2 Amano shrimp The swords are the ones in question. The females seem constantly pregnant, which is expected, but I NEVER see any fry! I...

    It all goes back to that darn ping-pong ball. If only it hadn't settled bouncing in the glass fish bowl. If only I hadn't wasted two crisp dollar bills to play the game. If only I hadn't seen the big red sign announcing you could "win a fish here!". If only I hadn't decided to go to the...

    OK, I am thinking about breeding brine shrimp for some fry (guppy). Upon reasearching most of the sites tell that brine shrimp live and breed in salt water. So now I'm confused. If brine shrimp are used as food for freshwater, but are bred in saltwater, how is this possible? Are they like, dual...

    I recently (recent being not a whole year yet) got a free fish tank from a friend/neighbor (woo) so I got some live plants, gravel, fish etc. then my mom decided to buy some Black mollies one day, the very same night they started shooting babies out,(I know their called fry but I'm calling them...
