I just got home from work and notice one of my guppy (they are females, but hey they can keep sperm for years so..) has a weirdly angled belly and she is breathing rapidly. I put her in a breeding net and turn off the lamp in case she is indeed having babies.
The other strange thing is...
the 2nd week of july I got 3 female guppies from my LFS. They're the only fish I have in my tank. I just got back from work and hour ago and there a little fry there swimming around. I only have ONE tank so I put it in a breeding net to avoid it being eaten by his mom. I wasn't expecting...

Which is it ? 10 until my tank issues...
