Why not give some to your LFS. They probly won't pay you for them but at least it would thin your stock out.

They wouldnt' take it! >____<'" :cry the emplyeee said htey get enough fish and said fishes from me might carry disease! Geez my fish are 100% more healthy than their and not to mention.. i dont really want to give it to them all that much, first most of them will die or go hoem with someoen who have no experience at all and kill them. If no one taking it i geuss i have to buy myself a 20 or 30 gallon tank soon -_______-""

That will just lead to more guppies a better idea would probably seperate your sexes and put your females in a bare tank for about four to six months.

Yeah i will if I'm thinking of keeping them when buying more tank, most of the female carry the sperm will continue to drop fry atleast a few more batches after i seperate them sigh* Gosh my mom gonna kill me keeping upgrading lol.....I cant help it..rasiing fish is liek an addiction...

Well if you keep the females in a bare tank (No gravel No NOTHING) the fry won't have any where to hide and the adults will eat the babies before they can grow up to make more babies. I know it sounds horrible but it's about the only way I can think of to cut off this breeding cycle.

I'm thinking about that right now, i think that is what i'm gonna do. Meaning more tank lol Geez, my parent need to build me a room for only my fishes lol. yeah...I know some peopel who feed guppies to bigger fish...I even got a friend who asked for them to feed to his ..piranhas or however that is spelled.

Oh Ryuu, that is a good idea but I dont think it will work, in that tank, the female continue to reproduce and I dotn even want to take out the fry but geez, my guppies dotn eat them, there would be like 50 fry swimming around in the middle of the tank side by side by a bigger guppies....they never eat them......I would post a video but i did a complete water changes yesterday so i take them all out.

they're beautiful, especially the ones in the first 2 pics :druel , if I live in OK and had a spare tank, i'll take some off your hands, after i do a ton of research of course :D but i live in florida :(

aww i wish you can. Yeah doing research si great but they are very easy to keep, mine never seem to die...bleh -___- or even get sick...except during the snow storm time nto so long ago.

HOLY MOLY you have a LOT of guppies!!! They're beautiful fish. I'd like to get some for my tank, but I think my zebra danios would nip at their fins. :(

I hope you can find a solution to your "too many" problem.

Wow, you do have a lot of guppies. I really like the ones in the first two pics.

If I lived close to you I would take some. I have room in my 10 gal at the moment for new fish. I am lucky, there is a lfs here that likes to buy stock from local people/breeders. We can get store credit for 1/3 of the price they sell them at. My mollies and platties pay for all the frozen food plus some.

Your guppies are stunning--what great closeup pix you got. Hopefully you can find someone to take a few. My local small pet store takes unwanted fish and gives you a 50 cent store credit for each one. They put them in a tank just labeled "Assorted Fish" and sells them for $1.50 each.

Lol Guppies are the mice and rabbits of the fish world :rofl .

I really want to breed this things, and the idea is, to have the older fish on the top and the small fry go thru a wire mesh to safety below.

Sound good?

Lol man and i wish i can give you all my fry, lol anyway, yes that will work, but do give them plenty of space, I do not recomend using any kind of breeding net at all, that thing is stressful and just reduce its life span, How big will your tank be? and how many fish do you want to start with? Just remember, they are tropical livebearer fish so you go with the thumb up rule 1 inch of the fish = 1 gallon for it to be happy and grow to its max size as well (even though my tank is overcrowded, so it's much harder to maintane and if you have notice most of my fish have stunned its growth like the first HB blue guppy the first 2 pics, his growth was stunned) If you have question about them you can ask me. I have been raising guppies I dont think 2 years, i think ti's already 3 years lol not really that long but not so bad lol. Also guppies fry grow up very fast ( even faster if you set the temp. abit warmer) so be ready for more tanks lol oh and also, the female can carry a few sperm sacks, so if she encounter with a male guppy for about a week, she will eb pregnant, and after her first batch of fry, you will be expecting a few more batches. ALso if you get female guppy from LFS, most of the time, they are pregnant.

fish are in my family cause my dad had some pirahnas and my dad's dad (i call him that because i never saw him ) had 30-40 tanks! (not eggadurating or however u spell it)

so my grandfather had this tank that was like 55 gallons with about 300 mollies that kept inbreeding and inbreeding and he could not control the problem, so (lol here comes the funny and nasty part) he just flushed them down the toilet!

it is kind of cruel, but just think about it. all you have to do is pick some of them out, dump them in, they will be fine and happy in the toilet water for a while, close the lid and painlessly kill them. i think that it is a lot better than havin them be eaten by pirahnas or their parents.

hope this helped!
