My female guppy was pregnant when I got her from the pet store. She is significantly bigger than my other guppies. She came home with two other females. I put the females in one tank because they were all pregnant and I wanted them to have some peace before being introduced to other guppies and stressed out. The largest one gave birth one night and when I checked in the morning she was floating in one spot and letting the water move her. I really thought she was dead but she is not. After a couple days of letting her recover I moved her into the community tank very slowly. I have been watching her act funny these last couple of days, floating, not eating, barely ever swimming while the others swam happily. I thought maybe it's the water parameters. They are perfect for guppies. Finally I sat and watched her and the others for a while when they ate. And I finally saw she is missing her right side fin that is closest to her head. And It's fully gone. Nothing but a tiny red spot where it should be. Could this be a sign of fin rot? Or is this a weird occurrence? I also could not tell you if she had the fin when I brought her home because she was so packed in a tank at the store that she didn't swim much either.
