How long was the tank unplugged?.What is the water temp at the moment?.

I would do a 50% water change with the replacement water at the temp the tank is now (if it is low) or a degree or 2 higher) if the filter heater have been switched off for a while.

she must have unpluged it at like ten and i plugged it in like 20 min ago so i will do a waer change and try to heat up the water

Slowly warm their water back up and add some stress coat to their tank. Just been doing some research on the net into guppies and it might resure you to know that guppies can tolerate quite chilly temps with no lasting ill effects, they just go dozy and lethargic until they're back up to temp they were originally at, but don't warm the water up more than 2 degress in the water change or you'll shock them. Good luck, let us know how it all goes xx

Fab news, how are they doing today? We bought our first 2 guppies today, we wanted 2 males but on closer inspection since getting them home, I think one is a pregnant female - not impressed didn't have to want to worry about what to do about the fry :roll:
