Unfortunatly I have noticed with guppies they aren't as hardy as the stores claim. I think the issue is the down breeding, Most are probably diseased when bought from stores... IN the course of a month I lost 4. I have one lone surviving female and she was pregnant but seems to have aborted her babies. I am fond of her and would be sad if she dies too.

Sorry for your losses.

Yeah. I have noticed that as well. The LFS I got these two from usually has gorgeous fish and I have bit yet seen a sick fish there. So needless to say I was surprised when they didn't last more than a week. Oddly enough there is one Petsmart near me in which all the guppies I've gotten from there have survived and are current thriving in my tank. The guppies I've gotten from any other place don't last very long.

Luckily I have some fry from both females so I'm hoping they didn't become infected with whatever it is the mothers had. They were really pretty and I would love to add there genetics into the rest of my tank
