    Yup they're preggy, as far as I can tell. When Guppies are preggy, they get a gravid spot(black triangle on the belly above the analfins) and they get REALLY fat. ;)

    Is there anything special I should be doing for them??? I have 5 total that are prego so I figure for a firsrt time "mom" I need some help. They are all different sizes so is hard to tell who is going to pop first.

    Feed them well - try and get them stuff like frozen foods! Also be sure that you have somewhere to put the fry, and a place the fry can hide before you can get them there. Floating plants and breeder nets/boxes work well, they will hide in the plants once they are born and you can save them with the net :)
