Just a question but how long it the gestation period on a guppy?
28 days is normally the gestation period.
Another thing is their environment. If your tank has too many fish, the gravid fish will become stressed and may eventually dropped stillborn fry. It's best to provide your main tank with thickets of plants for the female to rest while dropping fry.
Separating fry is not highly recommended. Guppies reproduce too fast and you may not be able to accommodate all fry.
On the side note, guppies tend to inbreed so it's best to separate the sexes as soon as you can distinguish their sexes. Siblings should not be mixed or you'll run the risk of producing a high percentage of deformed fry or low-quality guppies.
ok well we only have a female....a green cobra i think. we did have one of each but the other died. well it looked like she had babies, then she was small now she looks like she is getting big again so i wanted to know. But i havent seen any babies in the water.
It is not surprising either that you have a female that becomes gravid in a few days after you bought it. Exposure from males will almost always guarantee the females to reproduce.
Well i will be sure to keep a keen eye on the tank and probably get some more smaller plants.
If you don't have a pre-filter sponge or netting over your filter intake, I would check inside your filter for any fry that got sucked up.
