Cinnebuns Posted January 13, 2022 Share Posted January 13, 2022 (edited) Current parameters: ammonia - 0.25 nitrites - 0 nitrates - 5. PH - 8.2 I thought my female guppy was pregnant and close to giving birth, and now a response on Facebook has me worried about sickness including prolapse. She has had red gills for several weeks. I had battled a crashed cycle for a couple weeks and credited the red gills to increased ammonia but the cycle has been good for a week now. Today is the only day I registered any ammonia in a week. This is my first pregnant female. The last batch she aborted from the stress of being moved so I am trying to keep her in the tank. As a result, I have moved my tetras and the male guppy to reduce her stress, but increase my own. I was confident she was going to give birth 2 days ago but hasn't. I wanna make sure it's actually pregnancy and not an illness so I know if I should put the other fish back in or not. The first 3 pics were the ones posted on fb that initiated the "she might be sick and possible prolapse" comment and were taken 2 days ago. The 4th was just taken now. The reason for the persons suspicions of prolapse was the pink coloring of her gravid spot. Edited January 13, 2022 by Cinnebuns Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
