I'm from Philippines. A few months ago I bought these fish and recently they just gave birth. What do you call this type of fish and what should I do to take care of their babies?

From what I can see in picture they look like swordtails. You can buy a little mesh nursery to put in tank to keep other fish from eating or attacking them.


Feed them one or two flakes of food twice a day.

I bought a fish yesterday and when I came home today I found about 20 baby fish! Should I separate them or does the mother have to care for them or something? I just don't want her to eat them!

Separate them! Otherwise mom will snack on them when she gets hungry. Most pet stores and some Wal-mart stores sell breeder nets/containers. The best one to purchase is the gauze sleeve that fits over a rectangular frame. It hooks right over the side of your tank like the trays at Sonic and keeps you from needing to maintain separate water heaters, air pumps, etc.

I have a 29 gallon tank for fresh water fish. I think they are tetras. One died so now I have 6 baby fish and one older one. I don't know if it is the mother.
