Is my Guppie Pregnant? * I am a noob *
 
Hey everyone, I was just wondering if someone could tell my if this guppie was pregnant? She lloks awful larger in the body area than my other guppies and I was wondering if you guys could tell from this picture( I know it isn't grwat, it is hard to take a clear pic of a fast fish with a phone ^_^ ) If someone could tell me I would really appreciate it. Cause I would need to get another tank ready for the babies because I don't want the guppies eating the babies. Thanks :D

People are saying that my fish have a disease. Cause my guppies stay at the top. I feed my 11 fish like 2-3 times a day. I guess that is too much but I have only had my guppies for 5 days. Do you think they might die?

guppies tend to swim at the top but I would check your water parameters to see if you have an amonia spike thats what happened to me when I first set up my one tank I did alot of partial water changes to help with that. Is there any spots on them? hard to tell because they are white

chances are she is pregnant and came that way

Ok, I will probably do a %100 water change here soon. They seem to be fine. But I never know. Thanks a lot :)
