i agree with Mumma.of.two, but i move my guppy into a breeding container as soon as she squares off and take her out as soon as she is done.

A mesh one, not a plastic one. The mesh ones allow more water flow, so cleaner water for the fry.

the gourami are fine as long as they arent butting heads and coming back for more every 2 seconds. You would have def noticed something wrong from the moment they were placed in the tank. Mesh baby net, plants hiding places, keep tank at 78 or 80 degrees. Incredibly easy to breed, no trouble at all.

well when a female is really pregnant (give birth in less than 24 hours) she stomach starts to look like a square. could be some other part i don't really know what squares i just know it does. the lower half squares
either way for a platy it looks like this: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3035/...f2ca3a1168.jpg

Yes! I like to feed the colour flakes to bring out colour faster, along with bloodworms and brineshrimp powder. Its all three crushed up to a fine power. I have green cobra guppies mixed with the blue V tail guppies...theyre always the same ones, the blue guppies, they look amazing. Same with platies. Hope you enjoy those tiny babies cause they cute.

If they start to fight or chase constantly then you have to think about rehoming imo

keep the gourami away! They ate my neon fish when I went to bed; they tend to eat smaller fish

Plenty of hiding plants and a breeding cage/tank would be well off for her :* and congrats, my cousin just got a guppy who was pregnant

Gourami tend to eat just about anything, from what I've learned

Ripper (my male) does that too o3o;; I moved the two to a 30 gallon because many told me 10 was too small but they do nip each other occasionally which ay mean breeding

Some fish eat just about anything but in some ways it's good; Happy fish keeping and congrats on the fry!

Any fish will eat any other fish that will fit into its mouth. The dwarfs will eat the platy fry if they find them. I have a dwarf gourami (17g tank) and a gold gourami (70g tank) and haven't see them eating plants ever. I did read they would when I first got them but have never witnessed it.
