Yeah, definitely babies. It'll be a while before she has them.

@crowntail
I love your snail :D Looks similar to my Honey, but yours is more brown fleshed or red speckled than black. My Honey is black/grey fleshed with the same shell.

I wish I could have females, but my boys would have a field day, ha.

LOL! Snails are the best. I actually got my Dalihla thinking that she was a male. My friend had her and gave her to me, and I was planning on putting her into my 15 with three other males that I have. I did some research first, just to make sure, and sure enough, she is a pregnant female! I had to put her into a centerpiece that wasn't meant to be a tank. But, I got it rigged up with live plants, a filter and all that jazz, so she is good!

Well here are the latest pics of Cobra. She is 5 weeks old now! Isn't she cute? :3 My cycle on the filter is almost done. The new 20 gallon tank is cleaned and waiting to be filled. I with the cycle would just hurry up and be done so I can set up the new tank!

D'aww, she's getting so adorable! And she's definitely looking like a female, too, with her tail so skinny. Iirc, males would always have a larger tail section and tail fin - hers seems too small to be a male. ... Yet, anyway.

i've been looking at a lot of pics of guppy fry. all the pics of males at 4-5 weeks show no darkening at the abdomen for the gravid spot. also they seem to start developing color. Cobra definitely has a dark spot where the gravid spot should be.

I'm considering adding some guppies to my 10g, which currently houses five zebra danios. What are the odds that the danios would harass the guppies too much? They mostly stayed to themselves when they lived with my betta, but of course he would chase them off if they got obnoxious and I don't know that guppies would.

If they're compatible I'd start with the classic 1:2 ratio, and expect that the danios would eat most if not all the fry to keep numbers low. I think it would be really neat to raise these guys since apparently it's really easy to breed them, but I don't want to end up either overrun by fry or have the guppies stressed out.

I think that the danios might stress them out, honestly. I've got 5 guppies, plus others, in my 10 and I think danios and guppies both are top-level swimmers - there'd be competition for the top of the tank. I'd get something mid-level or bottom-side, cories or loaches. Either 3-4 cories or ~6 loaches. They've got a very small bioload is what I've been told several times.
