How long left until this guppy pops?
I'm pretty sure this guppy is pregnant, but I'm not sure when to put her into a separate tank. Anyone know what stage of pregnancy she is in and approximate time of birth? Thanks!
She is very close, my guess is within the week... can you move her over now and leave her for the next few days?
Also a water change at night 1-2 degrees cooler is like a cleansing rain in the wild and can spark her delivery in the early morning.
Keep us posted!
So I just separated her into a smaller tank to have her fry.
It was probably a good idea since the other two males were hassling her!
If anyone knows how I can make this tank more comfortable for her to have fry please help! Thanks :)
Water temperature is 26°C.
Didn't fill the whole tank up.
At the moment there is a hanging filter but I'm going to replace it with an air stone when the fry come so they don't get sucked in.
I set the filter current to low. Not sure if the strong current would freak her out.
I think she still has about a week left...
My fish had fry this morning!! *squee* :-D
I took JakieBabie's advice on doing a cooler water change the night before and it worked!
There's 12 fry so far. Now its the challenge of keeping them alive!
Just some pics of the fry!
This guppy looks pregnant again after a week of giving birth! :shock2:
She looks larger than she did now than she was when she was about to give birth lol
The fry are doing great! There are 15 in total :)
