Hello again! Does this look normal on my female Endler guppy? There’s like a protrusion there on her belly closer to her head than her anal vent. I haven’t noticed any behavioral changes in her tho and nothing drastic has changed over the last few days so I’m not sure what could have caused it. I’ve added some pics and here is a link to a video that I captured of her: https://www.dropbox.com/s/b2khqf8bbuoj3in/Belly Shape.mov?dl=0

I think, your guppy may be pregnant. Their bellies get pretty big when they have babies. It could be something else, but sense your guppy is a female and its the only one with a large belly, I'm very sure its pregnant.

It could be food, worms, babies or a growth. Monitor it over the next few weeks/ months and post more pictures if it changes.

Most common livebearers (guppies, platies, swordtails, mollies) have intestinal worms and you can deworm them. That would rule out intestinal worms. See section 3 of the following link for deworming fish.

She's not that big but she does looks squared off which says that she's just being pregnant.
