They're so cute that way XD Hattie shows off her lipstick for me, and Spiri just struts around. XD

Tifa tries attacking the camera. If he sees me with it he'll flare like crazy and follow the camera. He moves fast, so it's almost impossible to get a good pic unless I sneak one. ;)

Her gravid spot or whatever it is called, seems to be bigger this week than it was when I brought her home last wednesday. But i don't see any fry eyes....hard to tell since she doesn't hold still.

Hello! I am actually a guppy breeder! Guppies dont take much to breed in fact they are known to breed in almost any condition! ( they are also called the millions fish!) Well to tell if she is pregnant her gravid spot will be VERY dark. ( or darker than normal) she will also become fatter gradually. ( by the way females will always have a gravid spot but it will only be very dark when she is preggo) By the way the gestation period is about 3 or 4 weeks. When she is about to give birth ( or is doing so) she will breather very very heavily and fast and will likely hide in a cave in the corner of the trank or by the heater. At this point ( or when she is REALLY fat) you will want to put her in a breeders net. You can feed the fry crushed flakes or special fry food! Good luck!

Her gravid spot is dark red/brown. But i'm sure she has gotten fatter...I could just be feeding her more than my teacher was (how much flakes should you feed 2 guppies & 4 mosquito fish? I've been feeding them 1 or 2 pinches. They eat EVERYTHING.)
