Growing Baby Guppies

  1. Piggy50 Initiate Member

    how many weeks does it take for baby guppies to get to adult size? How long does it take them to get there color? How long for there fins? I know that you can tell what gender they are by 6 weeks but how can you tell if they are a boy or a girl? Don't know any of this, first time with babies

    They will get their full fins, color, and stop growing at about 5 months. though you can see the beginning of color at a month.

    My Guppy Fry are almost 2 weeks old and already starting to have color. Their tails had a black outline at about 1 week and over the last couple days their tails are growing dark in color. Which makes sense because the mother has deep blue tail. They are a little orange in color but that is mainly because the food I am feeding them. I am unsure about how long til full adults. At about one month they should be big enough to keep with other fish though.
