Well, if she's far enough along, then aborting isn't that far different from giving birth

She probly had alot of in fertalized eggs, I heard somewhere that that happens alot with a guppies first pregnancy. Or while she was givin birth the other fish followed her and ate the babies as they came out. Either way she's not pregnant anymore. I'm sorry dude, but she'll have babies again in a month and next time more should survive since you'll know more of what you're doing ^^

You'll have to wait 28-30 days for her to give birth again, you need to keep the water as clean as possible and keep her well fed. If you do the babies will be healthier at birth (and they might come a little early even ^^)

I suggest keeping the temp at 78°f because that's the best for guppies. Get it as soon as possible or else the cold can shock her and kill her!

Then your house must be warm, because anything below 68°F should kill them

Oh I see what you mean. They do like higher temps, yes, and you should put it at whatever you think would be best for your fish (unless you want my second opinion) so do it whichever way you'd like ^^

Hopefully ican get the new heater soon, so she can't give birth faster, and she can hold up to 3sperms right?

She can hold up to 6, sometimes 7, and that usually lasts over 6-8 months depending on the length of time she stays pregnant. ^^

I think they may have started breeding, I see egg shells when I didn't add more Napoli in and I cleaned it last week and the whole tank was clean, no egg shells anywhere, so yay!!
