Female guppy has red spots?

Well, she kind of has red spots on her. They don't look like normal colorations and look like a internal wound or something. Could anyone help tell me what this red blotch is?



I bought her tonight and put her in the 10 gallon tank I am starting for my fry. Hope a few fish will help with the cycle. It shouldn't take too long I would assume since I used a lot of the water from my other tank as well as some gravel. I will move them into my 44 gallon tank when I decide to move the babies... idk if the female guppy is big enough to safely put her in with my angels... so I will figure something out for her. my 29 gallon tank is pretty full... but maybe when I get the baby fish outta there.....

And if your like me you probably like pictures so here's some of the other 2 fish I got. :p




I hope my guppy is alright! Thanks in advanced!

The female guppy looks really red in the spot where her babies normally would be. =[ Is this something that could make her sterile? If a guppy can't have babies for some reason is there a way to tell? Do you guys think she'll be alrighttt? D: The other 2 fish and ghost shrimp seem happy.

To me it looks normal, and the red just looks like coloring. My female guppies all have a little bit of a red gravid spot area. She looks almost as if she just gave birth or if she is about to. ?
She acts normal, right?

Visit my website to buy guppies, bettas, or Microworm starter cultures! You can also learn how to breed bettas, and meet all of my breeding stock.

Sadly, she passed away last night. The red just looked like a bruise of some sort but probably was just coloring. She hadn't gave birth and she did not look large enough to be giving birth anytime soon. I think she must have just been stressed from all the changes (factory to store to my aquarium), but I'm not sure why. :(

red spots on female guppies

My guppies are getting these red spots and they all die.....I was told it might be a bacterial infection. Anyone got any other ideas?
