Hi all.

Shes Absoloutly Massive and has been for a while now.

Web site for Guppies- Good information

Here is a good web-site that you should save. Read the funny story first. The information on pregnate guppies is very helpful on the left hand side of the screen. I posted this before to help on this forum before. Also search thoughout this forum on older threads that might be able to help you. Hope this helps you as it did for me.

Any Chance Someone Could Explain Why 1 Of The Females Who Looked Less Pregnant Gave Birth First?
She Was Only Half The Size To The 1 In The Photo and she gave birth earlier today :S

some females dont carry as many fry so they will develop slightly faster and some females just take longer to have there fry :):):)

lol well thanks. im a sucker for fish. i cant bear to cull any so i just leave them be.
i would rather be over run with tanks haha.
but since i cant stop them breeding i was thinking of selling some on.
any1 know of any good buyers?
i tried my local pet shop but as im not classified as a breeder or wholesale they refused to give over any payment but were happy for me to just give them away. But yet they expect me to pay £10 for 3 males (that probably want last long due to their tank conditions).
