5 Gallon Tank My guppy is pregnant, but I was told not to move her?

BassaraAhara

Hello guys. I'm a bit of a guppy fanatic and my main concern is what do I do with her? She's had a big belly for about 2 weeks, possibly more, but on a different forum (I won't mention so I don't get flagged) I was told not to move her due to stress? I bought stress coat but she's in a community tank with males who will try to mate with her even as she's pregnant, and I have a separate tank for her to have live fry.

If she stays in the community tank with other fish, all the fry will be gobbled up. But I want the fry to be born in a separate tank so I don't have to wait for them to get older to move them, out of fear that if I change their water too young they'll die, but if I leave them in the community tank they'll be eaten.

I think it should be fine to move her, but I know a lot of people use breeding nets to keep their guppies in when they're about to give birth. If you want fry, then I wouldn't keep her with the other fish.
