Heavily pregnant guppy

I've just had a thought.
Occasionally when Axolotl eat stones, or something fairly big and relatively undigestible, it causes "impaction" - a deadly version of constipation.
Impaction often causes a prolapse - the intestines literally fall out with the pressure. Sometimes this occurs through muscular weakness, but I gather it's rather unusual in most other animals.

I hadn't thought of it earlier, but the pressure of being heavily pregnant, and possibly eating something she shouldn't have may have done it.
In smaller species it's lethal, and there is little can be done.
Even with axolotl, it takes specialist vetinary care.

A little late I appreciate, but I hope that affords insight on a new idea for you.

And I'll stop with the long words. (Sorry, I'm at work, force of habit at a solicitors lol!)

Hmm. I really can't remember what was fed before or just after WC. But actually, the temp of the tank is 26.5 (not 25) and when I do the WC it comes down to about 22 for a while, but have been doing this for entire time i've kept the guppies. The chill is taken off the fresh water with a full kettle of boiling water, and stirred really well. The bucket holds around 22L. But again, I can't remember if I noticed the vent sticking out before or after a WC.

That's interesting IBF. They couldn't have ate any gravel though as the tank is furbished with sand. But maybe.... the one thing I can think that I did differently lately is feeding them a bigger sprinkling of crushed flakes 2 or 3 times earlier in the morning before work, then nothing all day untill 4 or 5pm. Where as normally they were getting regular feedings throught the day. Had all the fish been adults I wouldn't have worried about feeding them extra in the mornings, but I was worried about the small young fry going hungry and dying.
Also, I never give them a no feed day for the same reason. Rightly or wrongly?

I would say rightly, it's good to have starve days.
Stops them becoming complacent, obese and filthy.

Could have been anything mind, chunk of plant... *shrugs*

I find that fry don't tend to benefit from a break in feeding, but on the other hand adults do... makes them less lazy! :P What IBF said above is absolutely correct.

My theory was that you might have fed them something (probably meaty based) and after a while did the water change the water change would have cooled down the water considerably and also slowed down the metabolism of the fish while they were digesting the food, and then rapidly speeded up again as the heater kicked in and warmed the water... Thus causing a very bad case of constipation...
Just an idea though...

*nods at Kat's comment*
Impaction is basically a very severe form of constipation. It doesn't necc have to be gravel - in fact, that would make a lot of sense if it was a meaty food and Kat's above about heat/cold...
