Now I have the three little ones out of the 2 gallon bowl, I did a 100 percent water change (I do one every three to four days because it doesn't have a filter), and I took the gravel out. I've heard that it is best for there to be no gravel when she gives birth. I still need conformation that she is 100 percent PREGNANT. I have to be sure. Thanks for all of the help!

keep in mind that fish other than bettas may not appreciate 100% water changes. is there anyway to get the guppy into a cycled tank?

I put the little male in with my adult males and he was fine! He seemed very happy, even when I was acclimating him. Now he just swims around with the other guppies! As for getting Dalihla into a cycled tank, I highly doubt I will be able to. All of the fish tanks have to be in my room, and all of my table space it taken up. I literally have to do my homework on my folder sitting on my bed because my desk is occupied by two of the tanks. Getting a bigger one is not an option (unless I convince my parents to let me use the big centerpiece glass for Dalihla). Is it possible to get a little two gallon bowl cycled?

Yay! I'm going to try to get her into the five gallon as soon as possible. I'll be doing more research on getting it cycled. I think that she has to stay in the 2 gallon tank for a while before I can get the 5 gallon cycled. Thanks for all of the help!

I would recommend planting heavily because the female can and will eat fry.

I don't think I'll be able to do live plants, but I did get another plant in the 2 gallon. This plant was originally in my 15 gallon, and I think my 15 is cycled (the ammonia stays at less that .02ppm, so I assume it is cycled, and I haven't done a water change in 5 days, AND I have a lot of fish in there) and I didn't rinse it off or anything because it probably had the good bacteria in it. Is this enough to get my 2 gallon cycling? And now the fry have plenty of places to hide if Mom gives birth when I'm at school!

I just saw Dalihla blowing bubbles into what looked like a betta's bubble nest. Is this normal/why is she doing this? It wasn't very big, it only looked like the start of one. Thanks! (Special thanks to aokashi for all of the help! and to anyone else who was nice enough to post!)

Two days till due date!!! She has been in her planted 5-6 gallon for almost two weeks now. I have a Marina i25 Internal Filter in there along with one mystery snail to help with clean up. I also have a master testing kit that I have been using. Here are the readings:
Ammonia: <.25
Nitrite: about 2
Nitrate: 7
pH: 7.6
Should I be concerned about any of these readings? Will be posting pics of her soon!
