The female guppy will develop a dark spot on the side of her belly during pregnancy. As the pregnancy progresses, the spot will grow darker.
If there is a female guppy and a male guppy in a tank you can almost guarantee the female will be gravid ( pregnant ).
Put a male guppy and female guppy in the same aquarium. That's all you can do. Chances are that if you got the female guppy from a store she's already pregnant. Female guppies can hold sperm for months and have several births from the same sperm.
The male guppy will chase thw female guppy, corner her and "show of" which looks like he is shivering before they mate. Keep an eye on the female for a dark ovary spot... you may end up with fries!
All that is needed is a male guppy in with her.
It might want to mate with it.
yes there are. that is how they get mates.
The gravid spot on a guppy is not always a 100% determination of pregnancy as the colours can vary. Quite often, when they are ready to give birth, the gravid spot becomes quite dark.
Quite often a male guppy will nip at the female if she is pregnant; this can stress the female and make her ill.You can place the female in a birthing cage early on if this is a problem, but pay extra attention to the cleaning of the birthing cage daily.
A female guppy has a darker brown line that is visible through its body. The male has a very light brown line.
Yes, of course. The males are needed only for reproduction. But it is better to find a pair for the female.
That does not happen with guppies. They stay the same sex for life.
About a month.
Any male Guppy (Lebistese reticulatus) can impregnate any female guppy. No matter what their common names are they are still guppies and provided they are male and female they can and will breed together.
It depends on how old the guppy is, starting at about ten for a young female, with the maximum at 70.
Your male guppy is female and with child.
The Gravid female will have the dark "gravid spot" in front of her vent. I can however assure you that if there has been a male in the same tank with a female guppy for any reasonable length of time she will be gravid.
When your female guppy is pregnant it will look a bit fatter than normal. They usually have their babies 4-6 weeks after they are pregnant.
If the fish has a "GONOPODIUM" it is definitely a male.
About 4 weeks.
it is mature.
Males have longer, more colorful fins, females can be smaller.
The guppy female fry are usually a darker color than the male.
if you're trying to breed them, don't worry. he'll catch her
he may be trying to mate or if he is a fighter fish.. trying to kill
