    I have a pregnant guppy. I've had her and her boyfriend about a month. What signs does one look for when a fish is about to deliver? Thanks

    if they are very fat and boxy shaped, and if they have a dark gravid spot(spot above the anal fin, its the babies eyeballs). those are a couple of signs. hope that helps. ;D

    I know my guppy is pregnant but was wondering what signs should I look for when she is ready to give birth since I don't know the exact date of conseption. Do they act different, hide, are they more active, do they stop eating or eat more? I don't want to put her in the nursery too soon and stress her out but I also want to save as many babies as I can. Thanks for your help. Dawna

    the signs i gave you are when she is about to give birth. it is when she is boxy shaped and has a really dark gravid spot.
