    Hello im new to this site. I am becoming a guppie breeder (im only 14) I bout 2 guppies already they r beautiful. I bought a female and a male. The female was pregnant when i bought her, So ya i have sum questions about guppie fry .

    Questions below.

    1. How small are fry wen they are first born, because wen i fed my adult yesterday all theses very small squirmy things ( small as a grain of sand) swiming around.

    2. Does a Female guppies give birth every week during a pregnancy or just once during a pregnancy.

    3. I have a filter that has big holes in it so that it will suck up the big particles in the tank. but the filter is also sucking my male guppies tale in to it ( it did that last night, i had to un plug and carefully remove his tail). and the filter is sucking up those squirmy things i was talking about in the first question (#1).

    alright, yeah, those squirmy things sound like they might be babies, i haven't bred guppies in a while though, so i can't remember exactly what they look like. as far as your filter, i would definitely get a different filter that won't suck up your male's tail. And even if these thigns aren't babies, if you don't get a new filter all of the babies when they are born will be sucked up. Also, unless you are going to keep the babies in a seperate tank, be sure to provide lots of hiding spaces in plastic or lives plants and such for them, or else their parents will eat them.

    Hello! I don't know fish, but my dad has guppies and the babies are indeed quite tiny. He always has a variety of sizes, with the teeniest guys mostly hiding in the bushes. I second the advice of getting a new filter.
