Guppy going into labor! HELP!!!
Okay so i breed guppies and have been for a while. One of my females named big momma is giving birth again. ( The last time she gave birth she ate more than half the fry..) So any tips on avoiding that! ( I knwo no matter what i do she WILL eat some but any tips?! ( i have a towel over the tank with the light off right now. she is in a divided breeders net, Breathing VERY fast and freaking out every 10 secs.
Take her out as soon as she is finished? Otherwise hope for the best. Good Luck!

Stuff her birth tank with lots of java moss. She won't be able to follow the fry into the clumps of moss and the fry in thee will survive the predation. If you can't find or don't want java mos, use some floating killie mops. They have the same effect and can be easily removed and dried and stored until needed again.
Buying a breeder trap would be the best bet. to keep her as little stressed as possible only put her in when you think she is as clost to giving birth as posible. also take her out during the day and leave the aquraium lights on at night put her in the trap and turn the lights off this is when she's most likely to give birth
I would also recommend a breeder trap.
See Our National Champion Miniature Horses @ www.whinny4me.com
OUR TANKS: • 75g Mbuna Cichlids • 75g, 55g & 2x 29g Fancy Goldfish • 55g Blood Parrot Cichlids and Tiger Barbs • 38g Rainbow Cichlids, Serpae Tetras, and Corys • 38g Small Tropicals • 2x 10g Divided with Male Bettas
the trap i have is designed so the fry can swim down but cannot swim back up, as soon as i see fry in the bottom of the trap i move them to a breeding net its a big pen like structure made of fine soft mesh where fry have plenty space to live until there big enough to move into the tank
