Hi all

please can you take a look at my female guppy photo and tell me if she looks ready to give birth?
As I would like to put her into a breeders box or net.

Besides the guppies what other fish do you have in your tank? I have a guppy/shrimp tank and have not needed to use a breeder box. The guppies seem to leave the young alone. I have 4 broods in 2 months-babies everywhere.

She looks squared off but it really stresses Momma to move her. I let mine have babies and then scoop the fry out. You seem to have lots of plants so may not need to move them.
