we can't do anything but to let nature takes it path.the guppy will give birth when the time comes. if you want to keep the babies safe put her in a breeder net.if after more then 2 or 3 days she doesnt give birth and looks stressed remove her from the breeder.you could also try adding floating plants to create a safe place for the fry if she gives births in the main tank.i prefer this natural method.

Thanks for that, I'm just hoping my platy survives. I did take my guppy out she is swimming with her two mates and i did put plants to make her feel at home. I'll give her a day or two and then put her back in the breeder net. In my 4ft Tank I have.

no problems.i would add some floating plans.plastic will do fine those with a lot of short leaves type used as carpets.let it float upside down it will give the babies shelter if the mother does give birth while she's still in the tank as you have angels and barbs they will snack on them.it's just a suggestion

btw welcome to TFK =)
