    So I walked by my tank and looked inside and saw 3 guppy fry inside, I don't know if she had much more since it was her first birth. Anything special I need to do now for the fry or the mom?

    I'd be concerned about the other fish eating the fry, you could get one of those netted baskets that hangs in the tank to keep the fry safe, it would also keep them from getting sucked into the filter.

    Just be careful when you are putting them into the basket.

    So far they are doing good, I went and got an extra ten gallon so I have an extra breeder tank for the babies.

    Congrats !
    Since they are small, you can feed them Hikari's First Bites.
    It is a great food for the newborn frys.

    Lol I just got some yesterday. Tried crushing flakes but they weren't small enough for them. I still have all 3. I have a breeder box on standby, but so far the other fish don't mess with them, or even bother with them. But I keep giving them brine shrimp and bug bites
