I just went to the tank and she was at the surface by my heater. After putting in food she remained still by my heater while the other fish ate for about 2 min. Then went and ate a flake spit it out. And pretty much continued just pretend eating while swimming around the other fish who were eating

Shes been back at the top now for a while, slow movements and showing no interest in other fish. (i.e normally chases away fish and now they can run up against her and she just sits there motionless) not sure if this is a sign of getting close?

When mine was giving birth she stayed next to the filter the other female and male guppy could get close to her but she swam away from the other fish,
Has she had any yet?

Nothing yet! I have placed some floating plants. She has been hanging out behind and underneath. They are close to the glass which is how I was able to see the set of eyes. They are close to the bottom of her belly so I'm hopeing that means they are getting set into place for birth?

It could be that, I would just keep an eye out from now on, have you got lots of hiding places for them if she gives birth and you are not there?

Believe so. Plants within the tank and floating. As well as some decorations in the tank they could swim into?i

Sounds like she might of had them then, just check your plants and other places they could hide they my be a couple that have made it. Fingers crossed for you that they have.

Its very possible they might be hiding. Give it some time or try looking very closely for movement in the gravel or other spots where they may be hiding.
