Default Help with mice & guppies!

The mice part: I was wondering if anyone has mice and is planning on having babies anytime in the future? My friend wants one, she has 2 dwarf mixes (probably mixed with mice, see my other thread). Does anyone have any they can ship to Washington ? PM me if you do . Thanks! I actually want to give one to Sarah, she has already done her research so she will be an excellent owner for them.
Now for the guppie part: My guppies had tons of tiny babies. What do I feed them?? How do I care for them?? I am also doing a "guppie project" to see what way they live better but dont have the money for anymore guppies. Not the really fancy male ones, just the ones used for feeder. HEALTHY females ones. Does anyone have any they can ship?? PM me if you do. Thanks

Can't help you on the mice, but for the guppies:

If they aren't seperated from the parents yet, do that ASAP or they will be eaten unless you have plenty of cover for them (live plants, rocks, etc). As for the food, I always used a mixture of hardboiled egg yolk and crushed fish flakes. You can add just a pinch to the water and they will devour it. Not too much though or you'll cloud the water. Also, as they grow, you can feed them brine shrimp - they love those! You can get them at most pet shops.

I love guppies, by the way. They are SOOOO pretty.

mice can only breed with mice so nothing can be mixed with a mouse

LOL, she has dwarf hamsters that look like they have mice in them and I was wondering if it was possible for a dwarf and a mouse to breed but I already figured out the answer to that so nevermind

Sorry I don't have any mice for ya. For the guppies they make specially designed fry food for babies. We had baby somethings before and they ate that. It's not that expensive it's like $3 for a bag that will last awhile. Just a little pinch is all those little babies need though. Give them lots of things to hide in and preferably their own tank (so take the adults out or buy a breeding net which is what we kept our babies in).

Okay, thanks for the guppy info. I just removed the parents from the tank yesterday. The babies are doing well.
