Don't know too much about guppys but maybe it isn't eating enough?

Well, it's hard to tell from the pics, but it looks okay to me. Are you sure it's not a boy? Looks male from the pic.

It just looks like a normal female guppy. Is it eating?

im positive it is a girl. i haven't seen her in a while, so not positive she was eating. should i keep her in the nursery container or return her to the main tank. all my hospital/nursery tanks are full of fry

Is she acting odd like clamped fins, gasping, laying on her side, etc? I'd just leave her in her tank.

If she is definitely a girl, then it looks like her bottom fins might be clamped up a little. But then again, she might just be holding them up since she is so near the gravel.

If the others aren't bothering her or chasing her, I would put her back in the tank. If they are bothering her, I would leave her out and try to fatten her up a little.
