Do guppies bleed after giving birth?


Recommended Posts

I agree with Cinnebuns. I've had several guppies from one of my strains develop prolapses. I never saw them immediately following birth so I can't say whether or not they had visible blood like that, but they did survive and the prolapse is visible as a little "outie belly button" kind of nub where their opening is.

I myself made the decision to not breed any of the females who have a prolapse, so they were all moved to a girls-only tank. None of the females from my other strains had any prolapses while several of this variety did, so I figured there was a genetic component.

I hope that your fish recovers!
