10 Gallon Guppy Tank Journal


Recommended Posts

We're going to piggy back our latest project on this journal because lets be honest, its ALL about the guppies. 

Both pots have water lettuce, water wisteria, duckweed, water sprite, and pothos.

The round pot has a big amazon sword, the square pot has the water lily that was in our 3 gallon tank (it was taking over).

We'll be adding moneywort and rotalla today too because we have a bit extra.

In a bit of sad news, though, out of the 8 guppies we got from Petco on Wednesday, we have 3 left.  They were fine the first couple days, and then within a day we lost 5 of them.  So no more guppies from Petco for us. 

We lost the platinum one, Ivory, but we still have his brother, Ebony.  We have two of the females left, but sadly lost both the mosaics.

I know fish die sometimes, and I know big box stores are a gamble, but man, the last couple days have been rough.

We really needed those surprise fry to lift our spirits, so they came at just the right time.  I THINK they came from one of the females we lost, honestly.

Oh, I've been there and I feel for you. Fingers crossed for your survivors and the babies! I've only gotten 2 guppies through QT since July. I have five more in QT right now and honestly, I'm scared to look in their tanks every AM.

Annnnnd..... just like that, another female dropped fry.  We netted them into the grow out tank with the surprise babies.  Our estimate is a total of 25-30 babies right now.

We saved as many from the main tank as we could see.  Have to check again once the tank calms down some.

You are on a roll!
