Bullied Guppy

One of our guppies was really bullied by his lyretail tank mates, so I pulled him out and put him into the shrimp tank. He looked awful and I thought he'd be dead the next day for sure. It's now 3 days later and he's hangin' in. He flutters a lot, sometimes at the top and sometimes at the bottom, but then he swims around a bit.

Need your advice about whether I keep him in the shrimp tank (2.65g) or try him again with his mates. If it's the former, do I get him a school pal?

Where to put him is totally up to you. It sounds like he has a really bad time in the main tank - is it just the lyretail? You could try removing the lyretail to get him to stop. We had a bully guppy and wound up having to remove him and return him to PetCo because he was harassing [I]everyone[I]. Removed him from the tank and everyone was peachy.

I would suggest pics if you have them. It sounds like she might have kids soon. Has she ever, ever been housed with males?

Edit: I take that back. Pics please, especially since it's just today. Sounds like she might have fry or she might have overeaten somehow.

Yes she lives with a male I have three female an one male but on that note I only got them last week but my other female gave birth three days after we bought her I only managed to save 8 of the baby's as I didn't know she was pregnant. The baby's are in separate tank and doing really well. Thanks for ur reply.

Hmmm... Those girls look a lot like mine did when she was about 2 weeks pregnant. My girl is now four weeks pregnant (babies are due TODAY!!!) and it is obvious that she is expecting. You probably don't need a breeding cage quite yet; maybe in one or two weeks, you can put them in. For now, though, just keep an eye on them. Good luck!


One a different note... MY GUPPY IS DUE TODAY!!!!! OMGosh, I don't know what to do. Well, I do; I'm just soooo happy! Today, I saw her at the top of the tank with her anal and dorsal fins tucked in real tight against her body and she looked like she was pushing!!! No babies came out, though. After about 15 seconds, she decided that it wasn't going to work. These are some pics taken two days ago:
