    My pregnant guppy has a red spot under its skin that’s looks like blood! What do I do? Will she be alright? Please help, thank you.

    Is there anything in her tank that she could have run into? It look oks like an injury. Just watch it closely.

    Interesting. Have any of the other females been picking on her lately? And when was the first you noticed this?

    Nobody’s been picking on her from what I can tell, I first noticed it last night when I went to feed them.

    Red..she died this morning, her stomach was a gaping hole. I guess she died and then was eaten by tankmates. Thanks for helping though.

    I have experienced aggression in guppies. Its possible she was picked on, then became weaker and eventually succumbed to the bullying and died
