the color changing is normal in the gravid spot. my female guppy's gravid spot changes from black to red quite a bit. Sounds like the move to a new tank stressed her and she absorbed the first pregnancy, however they can have many batches of fry from on mating so it looks like your guppy is developing more baby fry inside her(thats why the spot changes color). I would read up on what to look for so you can tell when she will have the fry. also what to do with the fry once she has them.

also your listing says that you have 3 gold fish in your ten gallon with 9 guppy. That tank is way over stocked goldfish are not well mixed with guppy. the goldfish produce to much waste for a 10 gal. the 9 guppy's are still too much for 10 gal unless it is over filtered.

Oh wow that is very overstocked. Goldfish require at the very least 10 gallons each, about 20 gallons when full grown.

4 Flowerhorns? in those tanks 1 in the 55 gallon is alright

2 in the 10 gallon tank and the 1 in a 20 may be pushing it. Flowerhorns get huge

Flowerhorn cichlid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

see link above it gets to 18 inches long...

9 guppies in a 10 gallon may be pushing it a little but can work

and the 3 goldfish should have a tank by themselves they get to be over a footlong too when properly looked after...
