Trauma in the tank:(

We noticed this evening that one of my daughters guppies was looking rather pregnant, so I googled pregnant guppies & confirmed that , yes, definitely, she was with fry!
While we were looking at her, she started depositing eggs, knowing that guppies are livebearers, I suspected this was not going to have a happy ending, sadly, this means she is miscarrying, but may still give birth to live fry yet, so fingers (& fins) crossed!

I will be taking a trip to the pet shop tomorrow to stock up on some equipment for dealing & keeping safe, baby fish, just in case!

I am finding that having the fish is useful for teaching certain matters, I was able to explain today about miscarriage, quite easily!

Todays happy thought:Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday!

Aww I am sorry to hear about the guppy miscarrying. :(
I had a fish that was pregnant and deposited some eggs but then we had a clean fish that would stick to the tanks glass all day come and eat the eggs on the bottom of the tank. It was sad.
Hope all goes well . :D
