    Hello people,
    Today i bought 4 Guppy fishes, 1 male and 3 females, and 2 of the females are already pregnant. I already had experience on Guppy Fish breeding, but i can't really tell if she is going to have babies soon. She is kinda quiet, the most quiet of all the fishes and she is always on the bottom of the aquarium. So, if you could help me, can you tell when she is going to give birth (i know that is almost impossible to predict the day, but i would be glad if you could help me out :p ) ?
    The quality of the photos arent the best because they were taken with my cellphone :/ Sry for that

    Welcome to Fishlore! We do have some people on these forums that have guppy fry. Can you take a pic, maybe they have a clue?

    well, i'm guessing she's probably squared off, but it might be a few days. sometimes they'll hold off on dropping them if they're stressed. i've had fry drop the day i added my guppies before though. if you really think she is going to burst then the behavior sounds right. i would guess today or tomorrow.

    I really dont know, i'm not that experienced in Guppys, i only had a 20 fish fry like half a year ago... And that time she got that black dot turning into a orange one, so I'm in the dark right now xD
    Lets just hope that she will give birth soon, cause im almost going in vacations o.o

    Nope doesn't look like she's ready imo. The stomach will get huge and actually look like a square (see photo) , that's when she will be ready. From the pics I'm not even sure if she's pregnant, a lot of my guppies are about that size or even slightly bigger when they aren't pregnant. If she is pregnant then she probably has 3 weeks to go. guppy.jpg

    yeah, now that you have the pics up she barely looks preggers at all. you have a couple weeks.

    Hum.. ok then. I'll try to post more pics of her just to make sure when she is going to give birth.

    So here's another one. I hope this one is a lot more understandable (its a picture of the two pregnant females) :

    Guys, another quick update. You won't believe this. Apparently all of my female guppys are pregnant XD, but none of all from the male I bought. Lets see what is going to happen xD

    Both of the ones you posted still look like they need almost a full 3-4 weeks before you will see babies

    Hi again ^^
    My female started to become quieter and she isnt coming up to eat. Is that good or bad ?
