  1. Question Is my female guppy pregnant


    0 Not allowed!
    On Sunday I got her at petsmart, and put her in my 2.5 gallon breeding tank with a male. Now her gravid spot is darker. And at times she has a drooped tail

    If she has ever been in contact with a male, she is probably pregnant. They carry their fry for about 28 days.

    If she does have fry, they won't be from your male, but one at the petstore. If your looking to selectively breed you have to use the fry, seperate them as soon as you can sex them, and breed the females to your male.

    Ok thanks. She is in my 2.5 gallon with a male, but I'm not sure if she's pregnant yet. And when her fry are born I want them to be healthy adults. Any advice?

    IMO, 2.5 gal is way too small to keep both of those fish plus the fry when they're born - anywhere to put the adults when the babies are born?
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, green corys, 1 guppy, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT with green corys & 2 guppies

    They would probably need at least a 5 gal. Plus if you figure 20 fry every 28 days.. that's a whole lot of fish. 10 gal. Tanks are cheap. I would invest in one, put fry in the 2.5, and give all the surplus to friends or trade for LPS store credit.
