Pregnant Guppy not eating or moving much

ktrowbri

We are fairly new fish hobbyist, with yet again we have another pregnant Guppy! Until now, we've only made one futile attempt at saving one of our Guppy's fry. After a lot of reading I've learned using a breading box like we had was all wrong. Now that we've educated ourselves, or at least enough, I feel like we've created a decent breeding environment (a 10 gallon cycle tank, Java Moss & Guppy Grass, and ability to maintain temp at exactly 80 degrees). Now that we do, we have taken what appears to be a very pregnant Guppy from our 55 communal tank, and placed in the breeding tank. However, her behavior is alarming, at least to a novice couple like we are. Our Guppy went from hiding in the corner in the bib tank to now laying on the bottom of the breeder and not eating. This has gone on for 3 days with no signs of having babies! Any advice would be gratefully appreciate.

I just got up to take these pictures and it also appears as though the black spot on one side has got lighter/disappeared!
