Guppy Drops Unfertilized Eggs
One of my big females was hanging around rather lethargic on Friday, swollen bigger than a house, about ready to drop. So I put her in a breeder. About 5 hours later, I checked on her and found she had dropped at least 75 eggs (yes, I counted) and every one was not fertilized. After about 48 hour they completely dissolved. I released her into the tank this morning.
No problems or questions, just amazed that she could have gotten by 5 horndog young males and not been fertilized. The males are her sons.
