Found two babies in with my Rainbow!
Now, this is just weird... I bought two guppies and one Turquoise Rainbow on the same day, and put them in a quarantine tank. This was about about 10 days ago. The guppies both died within two days. The Rainbow is being treated now for columnaris and is greatly improved.
Well, just now I was checking on her, and I saw something swimming! Thinking I was "seeing things," I looked again, and sure enough, two babies! I know that Rainbows have eggs. Would it be possible she laid eggs while in there? Or do they lay just while spawning? I'm inclined to think it was one of the guppies, but I had thought they were both males! Both had long, fancy tails. This is bizarre. Anyway, I netted them and put them in with my guppy fry in another tank. How they survived my 50% water changes, meds, etc. for over a week, I'll never know. Any chance they could be Rainbows?
