Hi, I was wondering if someone could tell me why i've now got like 7 fry (of guppies) when i was sure i started out with nearly 20. I realise that they are moving really fast now that they're a little bigger but there is just not as many and they are kept in a breeding net. :D pls help :)

If the fry grow at different rates the bigger ones could be eating the smaller ones. In a breeding net you can only see them from above. So they may get ick without you noticing. This could have killed off some of the fry. Maybe you should give them a tank of their own.

I don't think fry from the same batch can outgrow each other by that much until they are capable of eating their siblings. I haven't seen mine doing that. Normally (not always), the bigger one's will only eat the little ones if they can manage to do so in one gulp.

Maybe check if there is a hole somewhere where the little ones could have sneaked out?
