guppy giving birth right now!!!

my guppy is having yet another batch of fry but this is the first time i have been home to witness it. do they prefer lights on/off? how long will she be letting go of the fry? they seem to have a bit of a baloon bellt to them but i think that is normal becase it will just dissapear. any advice would be great

omg!!! something really weird happend. ok i gave up and went to bed because she was really slow. so i saw one drop and that was it. well i woke up and to my horror there was still only one and the rest were dead!! and most of them seemed to look like poop in the sense that they were all attached in a long poop shape. this is horrorifiying. i dont under stand what happend. i cant see how everysingle one dies like that. well thats not true i got 1 very healthy very active one i will call him nemo i guess that seems appropriate. this makes me really sad my last batch from the same guppy was 22 healthy and not a single still born or egg. what could have happend!!! sorry i am a little histericle but this sucks

Sorry to hear that! At least you have one healthy baby. There will be more to come no doubt and hopefully they will be healthy as well.
