There are many signs of birth you are going to need to watch your females very carefully! Then you will know when they will give birth

my females arent HUGE but they are big and the gravid spots are dark and big.but on the new ones i got today not on the old one.the old ones r still light and small. but i picked very carefully at the lfs and picked 3 pregnant ones. listen carefully. one of my new females is always at the bottom of the tank. i fed them a couple of minutes ago and i was watching her and she didnt even eat.she ran up to a few and she just ignored them.then she went back to the bottom of the tank.she doesnt sit on the gravel but she just floats like a couple cm off of it. is she near birthing?she is also squared off a little.

She may be sick! most females hide when they are about to give birth not sit near the bottom

They probably didn't eat because they're about to give birth.

That is possible however, since they did not all eat i doubt they would all be about to give birth, do a water change

nice avatar lethbridge is that a new betta?

i just finished the water change actually.the 3 females are moving around but one stops at the top left corner another at the bottom right corner and another one behong a plant. i think fry are coming soon!! but i wont be able to handle 3 guppys giving birth.i have a breeder box for one and a part of a tank for the other.but im just gonna have to see.i think by friday at least one will have given birth.i think its the small fat one. its about an inch long and its stomach is pretty big. i was watching on youtube guppys giving birth and they were huge and mine are a little smaller than them so i might be expecting them soon.

Thanks, yes it is my gold dragon crowntail!
Well maybe the guppy that is not moving much may be pregnant and going to give birth soon, remember the size doesnt really matter. i would be able to tell you how soon if you posted pictures, i know i use to be accurate within 2 days, dont know how goopd i am anymore

ok i fed my two female guppies that r now in the breeding part of the tank cause they dont eat and r big and they didnt eat. i feed them flakes and freeze dried bloodworms as a snack. they just dont eat. one female is a little "wobbly" she swims by side to side like she has something kicking her stomach from left to right. im scared i checked the water and its fine i did the water change and nothing. i should be expecting some soon tho.
