This guppy female (which I raised from fry) gave birth to 99 babies. This happened last September, but I still want to share Smile . The gup mom eventually died (possibly from birth stress). The babies now are obvious bigger, and some already have colorful markings.

WHOA! That's a lot of babies! How long did you keep them in that bucket? Was it filtered?

I kept them in the bucket for only a week or so, then they went into the tank with the older babies Smile .

I did a quick count and it is indeed around 90 babies! Nice job! This strain you are maintaining must have good genes as far as prolificness goes Smile
