Moving pregnant females can often be very stressful on them. And stress kills fish.

After looking at that photograph, I'm not convinced she was pregnant. I see no gravid spot and she doesn't look very fat. Did you find any young? I also see some redness on her. If she got banged up in the move this plus the stress could have left her wide open for an infection.

Generally its best to let the pregnant females stay in the main tank and just give the young lots of places to hide.

Hi all,

Since I ve posted this thread I had a lof of activity going on in my tank, but unfortunately not very nice things happened :( I had two guppies give birth in the breeder box and almost all fry died except for 3 or 4. Now I have this strange problem which I cant get hold of.

See this photo: http://img37.imageshack.us/img37/4400/imag0553h.jpg

I ve seen this guppy in her last minutes. Her belly was looking whitish in pink and when she died I noticed that her belly was almost punctured! in fact when I squeezed it a bit, her internals popped out....its the second death in two days :((

Any help is greatly appreciated.

PS: I found both male and female dead, but the male had no sign of this problem
