i have fry guppies and mollies mix together in the breeding net. before weeks ago i suffered from water problem the adult guppies started to die every single day . it is told that they don't have oxygen enough and the water have ammonia in it .so i did water changes 3 days and vacuum all the poop . then i asked the man in the pet shop he said that i feed too much, he said must feed them every 2 days only so the food will not pollute the water . Does that mean that the fry must feed them every 2 days. i will feed them every other day is it ok?

In order to grow properly, fry need to be fed very small amounts 3-4 times a day.

If you feed small amounts even to the adults, making sure little food falls to the bottom, it is fine to feed them everyday.

No matter how often you feed the fish, try to feed no more than they actually eat in a couple of minutes. Use a turkey baster or small syphon to remove accumulations of uneaten food, and change about 25 percent of the water every week.

The breeding net may be unnecessary if you float a large raft of hornwort. It will provide shelter and a few microorganisms for the fry to eat, and the fast growing plant will improve water quality.
