Pregnant Guppy...

I bought guppies from the store about 2.5 weeks ago. There is a picture of one of the guppies below. The guppy has continued growing and the "gravid spots" have been getting darker and darker. I am looking for advice. I have a friend willing to to take at least some of the fry if they live but I do not really know what to do. I wasn't planning on having fry and have been trying to figure out more information about what to do. Unfortunately I do not really have the money to buy a whole lot of stuff for her. I have a 5.5 gallon tank with a filter and bubbler. I do not have another tank to put the fry in. I do not have anything for breeding either. I wanted to do it some day when I had the money and time but I don't really have either right now. I have 2 other of the 4 guppies that might also be pregnant but they are not getting as big as this one is.

I am fairly handy so if I can make some of the stuff I need if that is at all possible. I made a sort of container to hang in the tank from a Milk Jug and I can use that if I need to to keep the fry in.

anyways...if you can give any advice it would be appreciated.


I had posted this in the breeding section but no-one is replying...so now I am posting it here...

I have 3 female guppies in my 15 gallon tank. alot of the fry will get eaten, and you won't have to worry about it. the leftover ones survive.

so do you think some will survive? i have plants and stuff...i feel sort of bad but if i was trying to breed i would have made sure i had all the right stuff for it...but since i the guppy was pregnant when i bought it...there is nothing i can really do...

If you have a large tupperwear or even a large plastic tub, that can serve as a birthing tank, You have already had the fry I see, but in the future it may work. Good Luck and I hope that they were healthy, cute fry!!
