You should notice a very dark spot near the analfin on the inside of the female. If they are pregnant, CONGRATS.

If an adult female guppy is housed in the same aquarium as an adult male guppy, she is pregant.

From the looks of the picture, it looks like you should have fry in about 3 weeks, if the temperature is 72F or higher.

For starters, I'd buy something along the lines as one of these

The one I had I got at Walmart and it was made of green netting, like a fish net, only shaped like a box. I had to manually transfer the fry from the tank to that though. The good thing about this one is the fry drop down to the bottom away from the mother.

That and some food for baby fry and that should be all you'd need. I feed mine in their little "nursery" until they were big enough to be released in the main tank with the others.

Most guppies will not eat the day or so before they drop fry.

may be she not going to drop fry, may be she is sick. It has been two days now since she ate anything, also she in breeder now. sometimes she stays at one place for long time. some times he bottom portion is inside the V and head up. any idea.

I don't know what's wrong with her but I'v found putting my females in a breeder box/net stresses them out because of the small space :-\
