Do some research on symptoms of labor. She looks ready though. Maybe put her in there for 6-12 hours or so and see what happens. And give her some privacy as well lol

It stresses them too much. How many other guppies are in the tank?
Add lots of hiding places and ploating fake plants or real ones

Here's what I did since I don't have a breeder net or anything like that.

Materials- large fish net, neddlepoint/craft mesh (with large enough holes for fry to get through)

1. Bend the handle of the net so it hangs ovet the rim into the tank

2. Cut the mesh to fit the opening in the net

3. Put the mesh over the opening

This way, fry can swim in and out but parents can't, so the babies don't get eaten. Tell me if you think this is a good idea.
