    You need to separate the babies and the mother will be done when she is really skinny and isn't having any babies pop out of her.

    Okay as of today I have 5 baby guppies left. They all look like females so far. Which is good because all the other females got sent to quarintine due to ick. 2 of the 4 are left. The 2 that died had some weird disease that made it look like they had 2 mouths and the tops of their heads were caving in. I have no idea what that was. The 2 left are stilll ok ick free but am afraid to release them back into my big tank. I will try to get some pics of the babies.

    They can't be sexed until the males start developing their gondopodiums. I know females are sexually mature at 4-6 weeks; not sure about males. but anyway it will be several weeks before you can tell.
