    Oh my God that's so HUGE! Have you separated her?

    isn't she just? makes my stomach ache just looking at her! she's been in a tank by herself, with hiding places for her and her fry for over a week now.

    Shell pop really soon, thats for sure. Just be sure not to stress this poor momma, livebearers can hold fry for weeks if they're being stressed.
    Have you thought about the babies? What are you going to do with them?

    Yey ! Let us know when she pops, fry are so cute! We have 4 batches of guppy fry right now and we are expecting platy fry too.

    Doing our best, we've got a 1m exclusion zone round her tank, keeping lights off etc. Should I cover the tank to eliminate visual distractions? we have lots of hiding places, but she does like sitting looking out....

    Once the fry are here we're taking them to the FS in Aberdeen who will sell them and donate the money to charity.

    Lexi, Can't wait!!
