guppies dont have fry they give live birth one at a time. I have multiple breading guppies, and have many baby swimming around every week. My piranhas dont even eat them. there to small, even if they seen them I don't think they could catch them.

I don't think neons eat baby guppys, I have had them together before with no problems.

Had Guppy feeder tank before which bred constantly. Not sure about Neons but they sure do have similarities.

Yeah.. sorry about that guppy fry thing. I know, I've raised them before. I just wanted to use that word in the description because it just fit, and 'baby' was one letter too long. Anyways, okay. I'll give it a try.

Do guppies/platys/mollies eat their babies? Or can u throw a pair in a 10 gallon tank, and expect major propagation within a few months?

... would be a cheap source of feeders if they don't require too much effort

i had tetras before and they use to eat quppies, but i dont know if the babies would even be messed with. i would say that if they can get them they will prolly eat them.
