female guppys

Postby ramsmad » Wed Sep 19, 2012 2:35 pm

Hi
I have 2 or 3 females who are producing quite a few fry.Is it ok to separate these females in another tank, or will I cause more problems i.e fighting males?
Thanks

You can separate them but be aware they can continue to produce fry for several months without a male as they can store sperm for a long time!

Thanks for the reply. I am learning something new every day about this hobby :D I suppose a lot of the fry will get eaten?
