Feed them finely crushed flake food or buy fry food. The finely crushed flake food will be fine, though. Don't overfeed. You don't want to try and clean a tank with lots of tiny babies around that may get sucked up by a gravel cleaner.

My female (which was thought to be a boy!)guppy is having babies. She looks to have a pinkish sac of some sort hanging out. Is this part of the birthing process and if so which part??

RE: OMG! baby guppy surprise!

The yolk sac is what is providing them with nourishment. When it is used up, I would supplement with baby livebearer flake food.
