Well if your pet store isn't a major chain, they will probably buy her depending on how much they know about fish. Or you can go onto CL and advertise a pregnant guppy for sale, people tend to jump at the chance to buy a female and sell their babies. Or they do here, at least XD

I wouldn't go too long without feeding them, a few days they SHOULD be ok, but any longer than 3 and I'd start to worry. Do you know what kind of breeder trap it is? You could look it up online and see how to open it (:

My dad showed me how to open it in two seconds, no worries xD
I ground up a small flake and dropped it in, the little guy is trying to shove the crumbs into his mouth, with no sucsess, theyre still too big!
Oh yes, I forgot to tell you, The other baby somehow escaped the box overnight and got sucked into the filter.
Made me so sad.
AND,
I got another male guppy today,
he's a beauty.
Turns out my petstore is better than those commercial high priced ones.
I got him for $5, he's speckled blue and green, and he has, like, a peacock tail!
xDD
Preggers hasnt done much yet, but her eyes just turned really dark when I left the room and came back.
Creeps me out, but, whatever, we'll see what happens.

You can soak them in some water from the tank and mush them around, might be able to help. Some people also get those teeny tiny worm things who's name I have forgotten |: Microworms?

Mama will probably fake you out for awhile xD

Your new boy sounds beautiful (:

He IS pretty.
Ill see if I can get a decent shot of him.
But pictures do him no justice.
He changes shades of blue in different light!

AUGH!
Preggers is being a total... Uhm... jerk.
Shes going after the new boys tail and chasing him around.
Anything to stop this, or does it mean she wants to be alone?

She probably wants to be alone, yea. Is there plants and stuff for her or him to hide in?

Theres one small plant, but its long and not really hide-able.
Funny thing is, shes only after him.
I fed them all, thinking she might be hungry, but 45 minutes later, shes biting him again.
I dont know what to do.
Should I put her in a plastic cup for a bit? I think I can snag some other plants for her to hide in for a bit.

Okay, Ive got Preggrs in a plastic cup, still submerged, in the tank right now.
Isnt too happy about it, but shes too agressive to the new boy,
biting his tail every time she sees him. which is a lot.
Im worried if she has babies tonight.
wont she eat them?
:/
