My female guppy is pregnant and her gravid spot was black up until last night. Her gravid spot turned orange and I don’t know why. Is she close to giving birth? Or did she lose the babies? Please help.

Well how long has she been pregnant? how boxy is she?

Color change usually isnt cause for alarm. Their gravid spot will be almost exclusively peach colored for the last few days of pregnancy, but it can change back and forth for the rest of the month.

I’m not exactly sure because when I got her she was already pregnant, she’s very boxy and looks like she’s ready to pop at any minute.

In that case, congrats! Youll probably be a fish mom soon.
I can’t wait!! I’m quite new to fishes, I’ve had them in the past but that was a long time ago. But as you can slightly see from the pictures she’s very boxy.
