Pregnant guppy

Hi everyone! I have a guppy that has a pretty big belly and I'm not sure if she's close to letting out her fry. Her bottom seems to be black I don't know if its normal. I don't know when I should separate her from the rest of the tank. Any advice? I'm going to try to attach some pictures of her.

Hi

She's at least 2 weeks away from having the fry, what you want to look out for is her belly squaring off try looking at her from behind if she's got the boxed look then she will be due soon,

Yes I do. I have that one that had the net around. But I'm tryin to find the plastic ones where once she has them they fall to the bottom and won't get eaten. Idk is there any other better way?

The best thing would be to have a nano tank put some plants in and put her in there then the fry can hide in the plants and once she's had them all you can move her back to the bigger tank, if you can't do that then yeah keep them in the birthing box for a few weeks till there big enuff to go in with the other fish

I have been told that the bet ones are better, but I don't know why. I think because they circulate water to the fry better, and trash can fall out of the bottom of it easier. I guess the plastic would be better for what you are trying to do.

I have used both, and the only negative to the net one is that it will grow algae if you use it continuously for a long time.

Thanks you! I'm going to try and find a separate tank for a cheap price and see if I fill it with plants. Might be healthier for both the mother and fry
