Hi guys, super new to this forum!

I need your help! This one guppy has been holding her fry for what seems to be 2 months.


Is she suffering from dropsy? Or is she just really late?

I have had two guppies already give birth. The fry are separated. I have no issues with water quality since I make changes 10% every 4 days.

Please help!

Hello!

What is her behaviour like? Diet, swimming, socialising etc
She’s actually so normal, just like everyone else.

Only thing I realize is that her tail arches down when she sleeps.

Can you please take a birds eye view photo?
Hey, I will but she doesn’t have scales that are like coming out, or sticking out which is why I dont think it’s dropsy. She’s just really big and fat and won’t give me my babies!! Lol!

I’ll post a pic when I get one!

Yeah my pregnant girl's tail dropped when she was carrying a lot of fry!

She does look pregnant, I can tell you that. Did she "deflate" at any point at all?

No, she doesn’t deflate at all. She just keeps getting bigger. It feels like 2.5 months now and she has not dropped fry. Is she too old?

I change 10% of my water every two days to maintain water quality. I’m feeding brine shrimp and bloodworms so I like to keep rank clean. I use a water conditioner every time.

Should I separate my males from females??

Nah don't separate unless they are really chasing her non stop. Do you feed any flakes/pellets or any vegetables?
