In general when a guppy swims like this, it won't recover from it. Right now, I do have one female which swims exactly like this one. She won't last either. I'm checking out when feeding herself becomes a problem, I will euthanize her.
Yep.. I think I will do that...

She's still alive and fighting

What should I do ? Euthanize her ?
She is like that for 2 weeks or more.. she was born on my aquarium.. I think she fought with others females and damaged her fin..poor think!

Awe...poor girl. I'm so sorry!! Once she stops eating it would probably be best for her to humanly euthanize her. I hate when I have to do things like that... But it's up to you.

If you decide to keep her alive I would put her in a breeder box... as much as I hate those things containing her to an area where she isn't always fighting to swim may be easier on her.
If you go the euthanasia route, I use clove oil (mixed well with tank water, add fish) after she goes to sleep I give them a nice stiff glass of vodka. It seems very quick and painless to them, yet it is heartbreaking to us.
I've had a few that I've euthanized to to medical issues, but I also have a few born deformed that got separated out into other tanks with no other guppies... a chance for life but not a chance to breed
