It looks to me like it might be a female fish because of her body and fin shapes. This doesn't necessarily mean it's pregnant, though it would be the most likely explanation as guppies breed like crazy and she's HUGE.JMI6 said:Im new at this My lfs told me it was a male but from its coloring and growing belly i dont think it is. With its growing belly i was wondering if my guppy is pregnant? .
Sometimes it takes them awhile to have all the babies. If you see 1 and she still looks like those pictures, she's probably in the process of giving birth now.JMI6 said:
What do they eat? I did notice this one going down to hide in my gravel or on my decoration. Hopefully theres more im not seeing and i get a few survivors.mimo91088 said:I'd just leave them be, unless you want a ton of guppies. At least a few will survive without you doing anything if there's hiding spots.
They'll eat algae and biofilm, but also little pieces of the adult food, if you're feeding flakes, just crush a bit of it into a fine powder during regular feeding.JMI6 said:
Oh wow! First of all, congrats! Second of all, some guppies do eat their young, but yours should be okay (depending on your tank mates?) and as long as you have good hiding spaces in your tank.JMI6 said:So while i was taking a birds eye view i noticed one baby swimming around. Is it possible there is more hiding? What do i do with it since i have other fish in tank if i want a chance of survival?
Yes, I think you're okay as long as you have a few plants for the guppies to hide in. If you want them all to survive, then I suggest you move them over to another smaller tank (if you have a spare one)JMI6 said:
This is a pregnant female. The one who sold her to you, should have known this to be honest.JMI6 said:
