My pregnant female guppies keep dying in and right before birth help me please.
I can only get two babies to survive artificial birth because mom dies in last stages of pregnancy.

there is no harmful in the tank but one died (mutiple times) first from some sort of spasm when I was moving all the fish and the hideing spots so I could clean the water and I revived her mutiple times but she would gather up strength then swim alright but when I put her in the breeder trap she gave out.
Stress during the late stages of pregnancy is very harmful and should be avoided. If you are interested in breeding guppies, either move the female in the early stage or set up a tank with plenty of cover / floating plants for the fry to hide in and leave everybody in that tank. With adequate cover, the survival rate is pretty good. Best of luck.
I know one of my first females died right before she gave birth because of the stress that she had received from the breeder trap. I frankly would suggest not using those except perhaps as a place for the babies to live in until they are big enough to go in with the adults.
happy owner of a wild type GFP axolotl named Percival and too many guppies to count.
