I bought some guppys from my local feed store about 2 weeks ago. One of them was already preggy. This mourning my mom told me that she looks pretty much read to give birth. I didn't belive her at all because she was eating and everything. But because my mom told me to, I did so. Right before I came home I notice a red substance coming out of her. Not quite sure what it is, but I have ideas. Any information on that can help. Anyways I cam home from work with a huge surprice, 8 guppy fry! She looks like she is not in labor anymore because she doesn't have that black spot and isn't as big. I was only gone from work for 5 hours. Can she still be in labor? I know it takes her 2 days to eat so I was wondering when I can realese her into the normal tank? She is in the birthing tank right now.
