female pregnant guppy being aggressive
 
I have recently just bought 3 new guppies for my aquarium 1 male 1 pregnant female and 1 none pregnant female they are the only fish in my juwel fish tank rio 125 at first they all swam round together but come the night time the male and pregnant female started swimming round together and the none prgnant female stayed near the top of the tank but the next day they all swam round freely the problem I have at the moment is that my pregnant guppy and the male stay together but the pregnant female has started become aggressive towards the none pregnant female every time she goes near the male can anybody tell me why she is doing this and what I can do to stop it as there is no threat In the fish tank as they are the only fish in there and its well planted please refer to my profile picture to see my tank ...

Thanks for the help

i don't see a picture for your profile... so i can't see the tank. what size tank is this, how far along is your female?

you have room to add more guppies. this might help them group better. maybe another male and 2 or three more females
