    She's probably eating them. You can get a breeder box that is designed so the fry fall into a chamber that the female can't get to.

    teah, t-chelles right, she was probly hungary and had a snack!


    Betta's like fry also!

    Mollies arent as bad as guppies at eating their fry, in my opinion.

    Abot the petco thing..yeah...dont trust people at petco in the fish dept anyway :p

    I used to work there, in the small animals dept..but i knew what i was talking about at least about those animals. Trust a veteranarian or a professional aquarium handler :)
