So, my female guppy is pregnant for the 3rd time now. Before her last drop, I gave the male guppy back to the pet store. So, I suppose she's held onto the sperm like I read here. When I read that, I figured it was an uncommon occurence. So how long will she be able to keep having babies after the male is gone? I tried to look it up here, but couldn't find it.

Thanks!

Great. An update- she just had one dozen fry (well 13 if you count the one she ate) and I think she's done. That's smaller than her other drops which were around 30.

Thanks for the info!

Another update- she actually had 20 something fry. I guess she wasn't done earlier.

Wow, what do you do with all those fry? I'd be trading them in at the LFS for some store credit.

I give them to the LFS. Hopefully, this will be my last time dropping off guppy fry.
