Guppy update.

Postby jzaine » Sun Jun 17, 2007 3:19 pm

You may remember awhile back I posted something about my guppy's dorsal fin being nipped. It was nipped all the way to the bottom and it was a pretty big chunk. I had a look at her today and it is almost completely healed. She is a very active swimmer and the other females croud her to escape the male (which is in the 10 temporarily to let the female's get settled and is actually settling nicely with the other male and the widows.) I was looking to see if I could see little eyes in her abdomen but she won't stay still long enough. I think I only saw 1 set of eyes and the rest were just pink eggs but I don't know. I just wanted to give everyone an update on how the female has healed.

Good to hear!

Fins will heal pretty quickly usually, as long as the base isn't damaged and whatever caused the damage in the first place has been removed/sorted.

Remember there's lots of info at The Tropical Tank main site!

Glad to hear it! :)
Don't let your mind wander. It's too small to be let out on its own.

Platy Babies

Excellent - i have a small 10 gallon tank and I introduced 2 Red Platies. Within about 2 weeks the female was preggers and gave birth to 4 fry who are now almost the size of the adult male. The fantastic thing about Platies is that they don't eat their own fry! So long as you don't have other baby hunters in the tank - your platy fry should have no problem growing into healthy adults.
