    Pregnant guppy gave birth to only 4 fry

    I am confused. She still has a belly and just popped out 4 fry like 4 days ago. Could it have been stress induced? She was getting harassed by males. Is she going to have more? The babies are also uninterested in any food. I've tried pellets, flakes and shrimp but they don't want anything.

    Sick guppy

    So today I just noticed a red thing coming out of my guppy’s stomach. I didn’t notice it yesterday and he wasn’t acting weird that I noticed. He is swimming today but seems skittish.

    Guppy's tail dissapearing???

    Hey hey! So, I have a tank of about 16 guppies and 4 tetras. Most of the guppies are young except for the one in question. She's an adult albino red guppy, and pretty much the most social of all of them. Yesterday morning, she got herself wrapped up inside a moss ball (don't ask me how, I...

    Guppies on top of tank?

    I recently got a beautiful extended trio of red lace metalhead guppies with a bunch of fry, and I also already had lots of fry in the tank. I just noticed that many of the fry hang out at the top of the tank and mainly stay in the same place. They don't seem to be gasping, but I want to make...

    Guppy parasite?

    Hello everyone, I got new guppies a few weeks ago and I went ahead and treated the whole tank with two rounds of API general cure to be safe because in my experience guppies are VERY prone to parasites.
