something was already wrong with his water from the start of this thread.unless he deals with it whether his guppy is preggie or not wont matter coz either the fishes or their babies will die before reaching adulthood

so lets start from the beginning. from the clip it looks like it has rocks in it.is it planted? how long has the tank been setup.is the filter clean or clogged.

have you cleaned the filter since you setup the tank? only use old tank water so the good bacteria don't die. the reason the fishes died maybe due to the tank not being cycled enough or the water not being clean enough. is the filter big enough to keep the water clean? are there active carbons in it? i find the carbons help by soaking up chemicals that are deadly to fish in high amounts, but since you have plants the carbon shouldn't be in there for a long time, i suggest putting it in after a water change and taking it out the next day but thats just IMO.do you use anti chlorine?

going on what was just stated your filter, how old is it? It could be time for a new one... that is a possibility. If the carbon has been used too much etc it might help to replace it. if by doing this you'd have to re-cycle the tank unless you can fit the second filter in the filter to jump start the cycle on it.
