Sorry about your loss.

Where did you got the guppies from?

Most fish stores got their fish from Thailand and other poor countries.
Fresh-water is expensive there and therefor do they mix sea water in.
Ending up in fish which are depended on the minerals in the water.
When they get to our fresh-water aquariums a lot wil just crash out.

Once you have a pregnant female or a pair.
Once they get babies those babies wil be much more used to your water,
since that is the only water they have known.

Yes the bad things can be a pain in the butt but for that you also get puppy eyes back,
begging for food every time you show your face to the aquarium.

If you got any more questions, don't be afraid to ask.

Thank you. Another female died this morning. Now my last female looks like she might have ich. The males look
completely fine but the females just get worse until they die. I really wanted babies from them but I donít think thatís gonna happen.
