Get it cut with 2ish inches extra around and get it cut so that maybe about 1-2 inches for breathing room.

I am having trouble in guppy paradise. Since Boa died, Diamond has become increasingly violent towards Mamba. Its to the point where anytime it is time to eat she attacks her. I tried to separate Mamba to feed her but she refuses to eat. I had her separated all day and she wouldn't touch the food. She just wanted back into the tank. I let her back in tonight. she immediately swam into the "jungle". at least she can eat the plants at night. She and Diamond have been enjoying snacking on them quite a bit. I actually caught Diamond devouring a whole leaf :/ I was going to put Mamba in with Cobra, but then I realized Mamba and the others are still under quaratine. I would be very upset if she passed something on to Cobra. So tonight she can sleep in comfort and tomorrow maybe she'll be so hungry she'll fight back for her food. I think Diamond is actually pregnant and that's why she is so aggressive. her gravid spot is very dark and her belly has grown quite a bit. she is starting to square off a bit along with Frigg. I may end up with some platy and guppy babies some day soon!

I'm fairly sure my guppy is in labour right now, in her breeding trap. Tips?

or be weird like us and use crafting mesh! lol

Mike replaced the glass portion of his lid with crafting mesh covered in duct tape when he broke it, and I'm using mesh on my 2.5 right now

I just put the dividors that came with my two 2.5 gallon betta tanks over it. They made a perfect lid with a tiny triangle just big enough to let the filter cord out! Not the most stylish solution... But it works! Congrats MattsBettas on the babies! How is she?

She is stressed... I haven't seen any babies yet but last time I made the mistake of waiting too long and she dropped them in the tank, but now I know when she is ready to pop lol. It is a nice orange girl and a yellow cobra, unlike with bettas I have no idea of what I am doing here! I hate watching animals in labour. Guppies aren't nearly as bad as leopard geckos...
