Cinnebuns Posted December 27, 2021 Share Posted December 27, 2021 So I've started my guppy breeding adventure. Practicing on $2 guppies before I get some with good genes. I have a 29 gallon main tank that is currently housing 6 glo tetras and 2 guppies. Originally was going to be 2 females but long story short, it isn't. I've decided to try to keep this as small an operation as guppy breeding can be and try to only have 1 female pregnant at a time. To do this I plan to house the breeding male, along with 4 companion males, in the 29. I will house the 1 lone female along with neon tetras in a 10 gallon. "Conjugal" visits from the breeding male will happen there. In addition to these 2 tanks, I currently have a 10 and 5 gallon tanks. My original thought was to divide the 10 gallon so I in effect have 3 5 gallon tanks to house fry. Given I will only be having 1 breeding female at a time, this seemed like a good situation as I likely won't have more than 3 batches at a time. While looking for dividers, I have not become confident any will work. Most have holes big enough for fry to swim through, and those that don't have bad reviews with other concerns. Do you think I will need 3 divided areas for fry? Any divider you know of that might work? Additionally, does my plan to limit my breeding have any holes in it? 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
