@Carolyn Ann,
Assuming you find your way back to here, what is your question?

Is it a tropical fish? Can you identify what type of fish it is? What type of shelter/Glass enclosure/aquarium do you have it now?

@Carolyn Ann,
None now, but my brother had about 8 tanks when I was growing up. He even had a couple saltwater environments. I hated when his snails escaped.
Rockhead is a current fish guy. Answer his questions and I'm sure he can help. I'm glad you found your way back, we thought we lost you.

@Carolyn Ann,
do you have floating plants? (someplace for the babies to hide and grow)

and are guppies all you got?

I have guppies, but they kinda act as game unless I quarantine them.

@Carolyn Ann,
I am long past school, as are most of the folks here.

What level of school are you at?

(as long as the babies have a place to hide, and any males are well fed, you will have new ones)

@Carolyn Ann,
Carolyn,

In the last year I've bred a lot of guppies (not doing it lately, it's a lot of work) and what I do is use a breeding tank. You can get one very cheaply (under $10 ) that floats in the tank. Here's an example:

Inside there is a V shaped tray that the fry (the babies) drop through to keep them from being eaten by the mother (and other fish).

Here is what it looks like in action:

So what you do, is put the pregnant fish in there either at the first sign of the fry (it can take hours to finish) and then when she's finished you take her out, and remove the divider. Keep the fry in the breeding tank till they are too big to be eaten by the adults.

I graduated from NYU in 1982. After that I took some classes towards an MBA, but lost interest and went into the real world. Never assume you are talking to another kid when you are on the internet - even if they sound like one.
