Question Pregnant Guppy help!!!!

Proud to say, my guppies are pregnant, but one of the guppies is showing signs of ammonia poisoning *red gills.

Strange thing is, none of the other pregnant guppies have red gills, and both of my ammonia tests (strips and vial) show ammonia at a 0.

I'm quite worried as i'm new to the hobby and this is a big deal for me.

Water changes are the key if you think there's ammonia, smell your water if it smells dirty it is, more info would also help people to figure out if there's a problem, give all you can no detail is too small

What test kit are you using? Is the fish eating normally?

Yes she's eating normally. I'm using an api vial test and a 7 in one quick dip strip test.

Was she in the tank when you were cycling? Otherwise maybe a parasite or just a color variation.

I have some Platy's like that and thought the same thing. After looking on the net and other places i came to realize that was just the way their markings were.
