yes, it would be neat to watch the babies swim and get eaten, do you think the tank would look good

guppies dont cannabalize their young much if at all if they are well fed. and cherry barbs arent too predatory if well fed either. heck i have lotsa molly and guppy fry survive in my dwarf cichlid tank, but i provided lotsa cover and food. they might not be so lucky in a 5g

thread jacked
ok i keep many cichlids but I have no success with guppies. I had 3 males and 6 females in a planted ten gallon and all but one male and one female left. Is there a suggested m/f ratio.

Sorry Kasshan but I have stood right there and watched females give birth and turn right around and eat the baby that just fell out of her. Guppies will eat there babies if they don't have anyplace to hide.

I agree with whisper!I've have watched female guppies give birth and turn right around and eat there fry!Now if there is places to hide then some fry might get lucky and make it.Even with hiding places if a adult guppy can eat the fry it will! gupps 772341 usafishbox
