my jumbo guppys anal keeps opening and closing , shes defo pregnant but never seen this before what could it be .she is pooing normal but when she opens and closes no poo is coming out if you know what i mean lol is she ready to drop or somthing

hmm could be that she is ready to pass the fry.
hope someone else can pop in here and say so. ? :)

ty willow ive never seen it before in guppys opening and closing

willow 10-05-2008 03:18 AM

neither have i,but then i've never watched a guppys butt lol :wink:
is she still doing it ?

chrisandmarie 10-05-2008 03:32 AM

lol i just noticed it was well open then shut again and then she did it again she is still doing it but not as often

chrisandmarie 10-05-2008 03:35 AM

just checked again shes open quite big ,then closes shes swimming back and forth up and down the birthing tank[/url]

willow 10-05-2008 03:41 AM

hmmm maybe shes ready then.
just wondering,as i've never had a guppy in a breeder,
do you ever put a plant in them to give the fish a little
somewhere to feel privert. ? ?

chrisandmarie 10-05-2008 03:43 AM

no should i as i have noticed the males hang around the birthing tank when a female is in so maybe she feels unsafe

chrisandmarie 10-05-2008 03:49 AM

just put a plant in so it covers the back so the males cant see her lol ,my other guppys babys doing great

willow 10-05-2008 04:04 AM

interesting! has she stopped swimming about so much now ?
glad to hear the fry are doing well.
