    I don't see any raised scales. But The guppy did reduce in size. I guess they had a Platy feast recently. :'(

    Hey, 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...

I know, I know, it's too small for a platy and she's probably lonely but I wanna stabilize this tank first instead of multiplying errors. Usually my tank does...
