Hi all,

I was wondering whether anyone could answer me a question, one of our guppies has just given birth, however she's looking a bit odd around the middle I'd say (in human terms,) it looks like shes got stretch marks, and her fins are a little pale and rough looking around her (was) bulge/stomach.

Is this normal, or should I take her out of the tank?

Many Thanks

Just like in us humans, giving birth is takes its toll on a body.

Keep her quiet and safe from being hassled for a few days and she will probably bounce right back. Maybe try her with a little bit of her favourite foods.

Congrats on being a new parent! How many fry have you got?


Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.
