The FOREVER pregnant guppy??
2 Attachment(s)
ok so my guppy has been pregnant for forever, and her gravid spot is very dark, she hasn't dropped any fry and i've had her for almost 2 months now, and she looked newly pregnant when i got her, i don't know whats wrong. i've attached some pics if anyone can tell me when she'll drop the fry or how i can get her to give birth soon i'd appreciate the help.

Is it possible she may have gave birth and you didn't notice? I also haven't noticed my guppies give birth for some reason. Sorry I can't give you an estimated delivery date I got no clue.

she was ready to pop i came home from school today and notices her hanging in the plant floating at the top of the tank and a few mins later there were 2 guppy fry i managed to scoop 1 out but not sure where the other went it may have gotten eatin or it may have managed to get to the bottom of the tank to hide under the rocks like my platy fry had done, these our my daughters fish so now she has me sitting in front of the tank with a net waiting to see if she drops anymore lol it could be a long day of just watching the tank.

bubbzy85 04-30-2010 05:45 PM

yes I go to school (college) working towards a career in the medical field and i also am a single mom my daughter wanted a pet so i got her fishies for her birthday (thinking fish would be easier than any other pet) lol they've turned out to be alot of work but finally starting to get the tank all stabalized after having a rough first month and losing a few guppy's and platys, but were at the 3 month mark now and haven't lost any in 2 months, yay!
