Hello! I'm new to this forum... don't have enough "fish people" in my real life. LOL I have had goldfish off and on since I was a kid, when I was a teen it went great with little work. I thought I would take up keeping goldfish again several months back and found it not to be the same easy deal it used to be... and have come to believe that people are not producing weaker disease prone fish. After putting a good effort into goldfish, I have given up and decided to start over with guppies. I did have a poor start to guppies but that was more my source and not of my own doing. I got 4 guppies off someone who, unfortunately, kept them in very poor conditions... one I euthanized as it had wasting disease, another died suddenly, the third got white spot and didn't pull through... the 4th is still with me and doing really well... but I suspect had a poor start in life as she is quite tiny... and we always recognized that and named her accordingly... Tiny! She is now pregnant. I decided to get my following guppies from a pet store despite how I've heard that pet store guppies are poor quality. I added a further 3 females and 1 male to my tank. Currently, all 4 females are pregnant. They are all thriving and wonderfully healthy. It is awesome having a healthy tank and not worrying each morning when I wake that I may find something dead. SO... I am hooked on guppies, they are a complete delight! That said... my most pregnant guppy is baffling me completely! I have been sure she has been on the verge of dropping for well over a week and STILL nothing! LOL I can even see the silver rims around the fry eyes peeking out at me and STILL they haven't been born... surely we are on the verge!!!
