Keep in mind when it comes to guppies, the females can store the required materials and have more fry for many months - especially if they're housed with males.

I tried the egg yolk today. I was making potato salad and had boiled too many eggs to i took the yoke, crushed it in my fingers and added tiny bits the the tank. Little Cobra went WILD for it. She/he ate soo much. I have a whole yolk cooked and stored in the fridge. I hope it helps cobra to grow quickly and develop some color. The color hasn't progressed other than those pics that I showed you guys. I am really thinking Cobra might be a girl. The anal fin is not forming anything that looks like a gonopodium. also it looks like the gravid spot is developing.

Update

Alright, here is Little Cobra. She's been fed Spirulina Brine Shrimp, Egg yolk, Algae, Omega One and NLS. The egg yolk has only been 2 days so far though So i expect to see more of a difference next week but take a look! She is getting so big! She recognizes me now too. When I come to the tank she swims to the top and wiggles for me. Very, very, cute.

So she's darkened a bit more today. I tried getting pics but she is not co operating. I am saying she now because the gravid spot is pretty noticeable now. Unless she suddenly develops a gonapodium... i'm like 90% sure its a she

I can't wait until the cycle is done on my filter so I can go ahead and get her some girlfriends to play with! Originally I was just going to do a 10 gallon buuuuut my mom gave me a 50$ gift card to big al's for mother's day so now I plan to get either a 15 or 20 gallon ^ ^ The filter I am cycling is only a 10 gallon filter but I have ordered a second sponge filter that I intend to use in conjunction with the 10 filter. I am also awaiting my phillipine java ferns in the mail that will go in the new tank. I am so excited I could die. Also I wish the darn filter would hurry up and cycle because it is becoming quite a bit of work to keep little cobra's tank clean. between her and the snails there is just soooo much POOP. omg. I am cleaning the tank twice a day. but in the end seeing her grow so quickly makes it worth it and my snails are finally happy.
