They usually get color around 2 months i think. But it's never set in stone lol some get color early and some dont get color till they are almost full grown.

oh wow! well they r 3 days old today. nothing really changed about them. one of my female guppys died. idk y she seemed wierd tho she was breathing fast and she was always on the floor or on the top. maybe she was just tired after giving birth. all my females r acting wierd and the males arnt even doing anything to them and the males r perfect. my females dont even eat and i tried different foods. one of them likes bloodworms but doesnt eat them. if i lose one more female i will clean out the tank completely but im gonna have to catch all those babies. all the water contents are fine i got that tested.

How big is the tank you're using for them? I know you said the water params are fine but how often do you have it tested? How long has the tank been set up, how often is the water changed, etc? Two in one day, so sorry. :( RIP fishies.

yea i know :(. i have a 5 gallon tank with now 6 guppies(3 male and 3 female) and i have about 25 guppy fry in there but seperated by a divider. and its usually tested once every 2 weeks. i set it up the day after christmas. and it held bettas before. the water is changed bi-weekly or weekly when i have a chance to.

omg the last yellow female is gone! she just died. i couldnt see her in the main part of the tank and i looked in the baby side and she was there! she jumped over and she was dead when i found her!! whats up with this it cant be the water it has to be because they gave birth because all my other ones are fine and i have 2 more girls and they r doing ok and they didnt give birth! and my males are perfect! eating and everything! so i know its not the waters fault i was reading and i saw that this happens sometimes for young females. and they were yound. they were all smaller than my males. my other females are bigger than my males. this is wierd!

Hmmm. I don't know. Did you cycle the tank? It's probably not overstocked but I wouldn't put any more in there. 6 is probably all that tank can handle and with the added 25 fry? That might be tipping it over the line. If the tank's only been up since Christmas and it's stocked to capacity, you might be getting spikes with the water. Every two weeks for a new tank really isn't testing often enough. What kind of filter do you have? If you're changing the water, how much are you changing? I know, lots of questions. Sorry you lost the other girl too. I hope we can help you figure it out. Maybe someone else has some advice.
