Twiddling my thumbs and waiting for guppy mama
I've had this female guppy for 14 days and she was already plenty preggers when I bought her.
Every time she poops I get all excited and then I realize... it's not a baby.
I only have 1 male and 1 female (I know I know, I should have more females), and he chases her around all the time. Do you think that's stressing her out too much? Should I move him? He's kind of a pain in the butt.

If you want her and they fry to live, he should be moved. Guppy fry are small buggers and can easily be eaten. A picture of her will give us some idea of when she will drop. If she looks like she is going to pop, she is holding back fry, waiting for a safe time.

when a female is giving birth the baby kinda fires out.....but you see it moving along the bottom of the female as its on its way.....where as a poo would take longer (sorry)...hope this helps

Can I put her in a breeder net?
I'd put him in there to avoid stressing her but she's in a community tank and I think my dwarf gouramis would probably eat the fry.

wow that female will give birth today tomorrow or the next day the least!

I sure hope so!
She's looked like that for a while though :\
But maybe now that she's safe in a breeder net? She's eating normally (like a piggy actually). I just don't know.

She is just pooping non stop. Literally non-stop. And I actually saw her eat her own poop, without spitting it out.
I don't know what's wrong with this freakin' guppy!
