I put a couple of female bettas in my guppy tank. They took care of the problem, eating most of the fry. And they are pretty.I'm at a loss.
I had 5. Left them alone for a while (1 month) and got 25. I took out all decorations last week so that adult guppies would eat babies: not a single fish eaten. Stopped feeding guppies so they'd get hungry and eat their babies: fighting ensues but no babies dead or even hurt. Now I have 35. I don't want to flush them but I fear I will have to.
LFS won't take them, friends and family super not into the hobby, and no one has responded to my 'Guppy Fry For Sale/ Free' posts.
Please help, I don't want to flush them.
