It's hard to tell exactly when your guppies will give birth! I have two that are also pregnant, all of my research has gone to show that they will isolate themselves or stay near the heater or the bottom of the tank when there in leighbour, also if you don't want your guppies to eat the babies you should have hiding spots for them when there born

Yeah I'm not even sure if they are or not I'm pretty sure the red one is because I have a male in there but the yellow one is a molly, I need to get like a castle or something for all the babies to hide in because I don't have enough places, but I'm like positive my female guppies are pregnant

For fry you want DENSE plants to hide in. Java Moss, Guppy Grass or thick fake plants. Castles or caves don't work.

The Purple thing might work. I'm not a huge fan of breeder boxes as I think it stresses the female. But many people like them.

Yes I also have the three way breader, I just don't know when to tell if there going to give birth so I'm keeping my pregnant guppy in it for now because I don't have much for them to hide in when there born

This is how I have my 55 gallon stocked with plants and hiding places for the fry. I used to use the plastic breeder boxes but it's hard to tell exactly when they will give birth and it is also a lot of work. I have resulted to this set up and hope the fry have plenty of room to hide and survive.
