you got them 2 days ago and you want to force them to mate??? slow down it doesnt work that way. i bet it's a new tank as well. the water needs to be in good condition and the females have to be ready and willing before they can mate. don't worry too much guppies don't have to have a certain partner.when the females pregnant the males will chase her all over the tank.theres no need for you to force them to except each other.its just silly to do that.

the baby's come out alive and will be able to swim straight away. make sure theres is floating plants on the top of the water for them too hide or the parents or other fish will eat them.

look out for white spots on the fish. it's called ich and it's very common but if you don't cure them they will die. warm water usually keeps ich at bay. leave the lights on to heat the tank. use a thermometer and see whats the temp like. plants hate warm water make sure it doesn't go above 30

well in some cases the gravid spot will be nearly black and the fish will swell like a ballon.you will find the male nippig at her side.thats when she will give birth to new babies.

no gravid spot=no preggie
