numbers and guppy problem


i really didn't know where this goes but i am gonna put it here i need a little advice about my female guppy. first to start off with is my tank size and stuff. 20 gal no planted sand substrate. i just checked the water levels and everything came out good they are as follows: gh:7 drops, KH: 7drops, NH3: 0mg, PH: 8.0, Nitrite: > 0.03mg. i have notice her behavor as in swimming is not the guppy way she sometimes swims veritcally up and down like her head is weighing her down there is a dark spot and she is more bloated then ever. other fish are fine. she normally swims around the tank or just hangs in one of the corners.

reread your post ...my females tend to do that more often when they are having babies or just about to so might want to keep an eye out!

Any chance of a picture? From the description it could just be odd behavior and pregnancy, OR disease.
