Guppies eating there fry


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had an issue with there guppies eating there own fry? I dont mean like accidentlly eating 1 or 2, My guppies literally follow behind the females waiting for them to drop fry so they can eat them. I tried putting them in a breeder box and then moved most fry to another tank when they gve birth there was 3 fry i couldnt get with the breeder box in so i removed the 2 females and dropped them into the tank, as soon as i did they hunted down and ate the last 3 fry. I feed multiple times daily high protein food and even bloodworm. They have many places to hide but the larger female guppies will sqeeze into anywhere just to eat them.
