I have got a female guppy and she has a really dark gravid spot compared to my other guppy also she is a bit fatter than the other, not sure what to do or when to put her in a breeding net.
HELP!

If she is chubby, she is most likely pregnent. Do you have a tank for fry?

she isnt that chubby, but she is more than the other female, but i have heard that some fish arnt always really fat some are quite smaller.
i kinda have a tank for try i have just a shark in it which is going monday as it is too agressive now, the only thing is it doesnt have a heater in it

yea she most likely is preggo. if you suspect preggo, then 9 times out of 10 shes preggo. as far as a a breeder trap, ive heard that they are not recommended bcuz of stress, but i have used a home made breeder that worked just fine. otherwise, just let nature take its course. you surely want a heater for the fry tank theyll like that a lot. what size tank will you be using for the fry tank?

oh i was talking about a breeder box but yeah a net should be fine. with my platy, when she squares off i but her in my breeder box and within hours she starts dropping. i think she likes the box better than the other fishes...but y feel you on her droppin while youre gone, that would be a disaster! good luck with the babies though
