Hello all, so I have some female black Moscow guppies. I removed the males a few weeks ago to another tank to give them a break from the harrassment, lol. I have gotten 30 or so babies then maybe 20 more last night. I know they can store sperm but none look less pregnant.

I do feed plecos at bottom also and wonder if they are picking at that and overfeeding.

Scales all look normal. Eating like monsters, swimming normal all over tank. Slightly labored breathing. Just all huge still.

Those fish do not look like sad little water pinecones (dropsy), instead i see the next generation of guppies in your tank!

There is nothing worse than your fish becoming sad pinecones. Trust me, I know first hand how bad dropsy is.

Your fish are pregnant, meaning they are happy in their little habitat. Hopefully you can keep it that way.
