    my female guppy is highly pregnant. I moved her to her own tank for the time being, and she has been showing signs of labor for a few days now. (Shivering, hiding, barely eating, etc.) now I stopped to check on her before going to bed, and she is shaking to the point she looks like she is having a seizure. Is this normal? This is my first time owning guppies so I want to make sure she’s ok.

    I had moved her into her own tank right after I got her about a week ago because I read it’s better for her to be separate to give birth. So it was before the labor process even started. She’s in a quiet area, with lots of plants and hiding spots. So it wasn’t a recent move during labor. Today no sign of any fry, but she looks a little smaller, yet is still acting like she’s in labor.
