Well it depends really, I know people who remove the adults but I just leave them in with them. And they always survive. But I think the parents may eat some of them if they are together.

when my guppy haved babies the parents didnt eatthem, but the other fish in the aquarium did. So i would say if the parents start to eat them then they should be seperate. But if they dont then you can leave them together.

If there are enough hiding places then they might be ok. If you want them to definitely survive, though, separating would be a good idea.

Yup, she can get pregnant again. Guppies breed like crazy.
