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!
