4 new baby guppies, but the mum died?
I noticed last night that one of my fat female guppies was swaying side to side, rather then swimming around like the others. I thought nothing of it and went to bed.
I looked at the tank this evening and noticed that the female guppy was dead at the bottom of the tank and was no longer fat. I looked around the tank and noticed 4 tiny baby fish! :)
I have put the baby guppies into a small container, and placed it floating on the surface of the tank. I placed a tiny amount of fish flakes in the container for them too.
Any ideas on how the female died? I assume it was a birth-related death as all the other guppies are fine.
Also any suggestions and advice for how I can take extra special care of these babies?
P.S - Current tank tempreture is 24.5
