    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.
