Guppy help!!!!!!!!

Got a pair of guppies on January 10 and she is probably pregnant now, but till now why hasn't she given birth yet? On the 3rd week I placed her In a breeding net and left her there until last week why hasn't she given birth yet(I don't have enough space for another 10g tank)

1. She may have had her fry and they all got eaten
2. she may not have been pregnant
3. She may have aborted

I believe in leaving the female in the tank with the male and other female but just have it heavily planted (fake or real) the plants will have to be at the top and bottom of the tank. Java moss works great and grows fast. It also has little things in it that the fry can eat.

I totally agree don't move the female especially if she is pregnant. I started a 20 gallon tank with two pairs of guppies. In the tank I floated some hornwort plants and covered the intake valve of the filter with sponge ( fry will get sucked into the filter ). The fry were never harmed in the tank, after a several months I have over 50 full grown guppies now. All the tank inhabitants eat flaked food but also love baby brine shrimp.

Post a pic of her, you usually want to wait untill she has squared out, not just a gravid spot. A gravid spot means she is holding, but squared out means she is about to drop, my guppies stay squared out for days then i wake up and poof they are all flat with a small gravid spot again.

Hard to say in that pic, but my female guppies look rounder before they give birth.

I have a preggo female that has see through scales like yours, when she is closer to popping, you're going to be able to almost distinguish each baby, and mine I can see each egg turning into a baby fishie! It's really cool! I've got a thread called pregnant guppy with pics, if you'd like to see pics ^^
