I just wanted to do a bit of a follow up on this story.
Mr/Ms guppy probably died or was eaten :( And the eggs she may have been carrying were aborted. There was simply to much stress in the tank.
But the next time I noticed that she was swimming in the corner and had a mouth full of something I put her in my goldfish tank.
She really liked it in that tank. Didn't bother anybody. Except my chinese algae eater. They like to pick fights with each other. But either one can easily go hide somewhere else, so I let them settle their problems.
And after 2-3 weeks she finally started eating and was acting very hyper....Once again I thought she aborted the babies. So I put her back in her rightful tank and that was that.
5 days later........I'm looking in my goldfish tank and notice some baby guppies huddled in a corner near the bottom.(I keep small guppies with my goldfish) I thought. "thats weird, usually they hang out near the middle or top"
Then it hit me. SHE ACTUALLY DID IT! SHE HAD BABIES!! I counted 5 little purple cichlids for sure. They are unbelievably small. And I seriously wonder how a fish that small can think, see, eat, digest and be alive in general!
I'll get some pictures posted soon. They like to hide. They are smart little guys.
