IME they are not picky on food. Unlike bettas, they will literally eat anything. When I'm out of fish food, I would simply toss in a small piece of bread. Just make sure that you do wc accordingly.

Great info...I want to expand to guppies, mollies, and endlers really soon but I need to get some more tanks first and jars for all my bettas.

Do guppies have contractions when giving birth?

I think my pregnant guppy is having contractions!

Yes they do have contractions.
Some signs to watch for
1. Not eating, usually the female will stop eating just before going into labour.
2. Staying by herself, mine usually hang around the heater when giving birth.
3. going up and down the sides of the tank over and over again.
4. More vibrant colour, the colours on my females tails usually seem richer a day or so before giving birth.

My female has all of those except I put her in a 10g filled half way up to about 78 degrees, but she is hanging out by the heater. Every know and then she will slowly swim around, sometimes going up and hangs out by the bubbler (probably getting oxygen?).


Wait.. nvm now she is down at the bottom towards the front … nvm again lol she is slowly going to the right side…. now up to the surface again.

I read somewhere that movement helps with the birth, do you think that is what is happening?

Yes BBS is the best way to go for feeding any fry! My guppy fry that i have right now are all very healthy and happy with portions of BBS.

I don't have Baby Brine Shrimp, just frozen and freeze dried adult brine shrimp. I also have microworms. Would this suffice?

Microworms sound like they would be fine. I don't see why the wouldn't be.
