Pregnant again :D

Ethan had been pestering me for pets and I never agree as I dislike having those ‘things’ running around in the house. I hate cleaning up after them. I only agree to let him have fish or tortoise but he dislike tortoise. We tried taking care of tigerbarb but they died barely a week after :(

Two months ago, my neighbour gave me 8 guppies. Out of those eight, only ONE is an adult female guppy and she happens to be pregnant. I don’t know if we can call a fish pregnant, but what the heck… Two weeks after caring for those guppies, I was surprise to see baby guppies one fine morning. Some died as the bigger guppies bit them :( I quickly transferred those babies into a separate bowl. I managed to rescue 8 baby guppies. 8 + 8 and now I have 16 guppies altogether!


The cute little baby guppies :D

I am sure it was only barely a month ago she ‘gave birth’ as I posted the above pic in my FB on Nov 9 announcing that I’m now a proud Grandmother! :P

Now, three weeks after the adult female guppy became a mommy, she is heavily pregnant again!

I was looking at my guppies when I spotted her with her bulging abdomen again. I can even see eggs with fries in it! Three weeks only!! Fuiyo!!

This morning, as usual, the first thing I do when I get downstairs in the mornings is to look at my fish and feed them. I saw that the Momma Fish is no longer bloated! She has ‘given birth’ BUT so many fries have been eaten by the others :(

I rushed to take the little ones out and only managed to save 4 this time around. I counted and saw at least 6 dead baby guppies… sobs! :`(

    Guppies are surely “subur” hor keke. Next time got to take note to transfer the guppies immediately to another jar when you notice it pregnant loh.

    Yeap, not easy to save those baby guppies. I used to rear them, but they tend to fight among themselves. So got to seperate them and in the end, all died.

    Merryn’s pregnant? haha. Yuppies reproduce quite fast and they are easy to take care no need to use those water pump gadget. Poor babies eaten alive by their brothers and sisters.
