  1. OK, I've got a pregnant Desert Goby, she's getting quite large so must be time soon to spit the eggs out, I can't have a cave, pipe or anything for the female to lay in and male to fan/guard, what else can I use? A cup? haha.
  2. How to tell if your female guppy is pregnant and setting up your tank for breeding: Due to youtube issue with annotations, recommended to watch on non mobile device.
  3. Taken few days later. One of the female gave birth and the Fry were moved to a breeding box temporarily: Due to youtube issue with annotations, recommended to watch on non mobile device.
  4. I have never kept guppies before and got my first pair of Bluegrass. I've only had them for a short time but it seems her belly is getting bigger and she definitely has a dark gravid spot. What I'd like to know is, is she pregnant and if so how long 'til she drops? They are in a 2 x 1 tank that I've been using to grow some Java Moss and Java Fern. Will the fry be safe or should I use a guppy box? Sorry about the pics but she wouldn't stay still and the phone has a hard time getting the correct focus.

  7. Hi All, I recently bought 2 gold sucking catfish from the LFS. 1 Pregnant female and 1 unsexed possibly male. The female was heavily pregnant on Friday night constantly hiding in the plants and ornaments when we checked on them Saturday arvo she was no longer pregnant. Does anyone know the hatching time for catfish eggs, Success rate of hatching or how big the fry is once hatched?? :confused: Since no longer being fat / laying the eggs she seems more sociable and happily swimming around the tank. Was hoping to do a water change tonight but think i might leave it until we see signs of life so we don't suck up the eggs Thanks

  13. Hey all, I just had another of my female guppies die. This one was in my birthing tank, and earlier today I caught one of the other females attacking her tail fin. So I moved that other female back into my main display tank, and put the giant pregnant one into the little birthing box thingy so that none of the other females could get to her. Well, I just went and looked again, and the giant pregnant one was floating dead inside the birthing box thing. So, we decided that since she was so pregnant, the babies might still be alive, and performed a c-section on it. Turns out that there were no babies inside her at all, just this rather large bloated see-through sack. Not sure whether there was liquid or air in this sack, but there was definately no babies. Any idea what could cause a fish's stomach to bloat so much and look pregnant? I will add a pic of the fish from earlier today before it died. Thanks all.
