    My female guppy is pregnant again! This will be the third time, and it’s funny because it literally happens exactly 1 month after she gives birth. I already have 13 2-month old fry and around 45 1 month old fry. But this time she is huge!!! She’s always looked fat ever since I got her ( 5 months) but I think this is the biggest she’s ever been. Although, the father did die, jumped out, a couple weeks ago. Yes I see a Gravid Spot, and her normal pregnancy behavior ( hiding behind the heater). But I think this is the biggest guppy known to mankind! If you have seen one bigger, let me know IMG_0116.JPGIMG_0115.JPGIMG_0118.JPG

    She does look like she's ready to pop. Gestation is around 28 days, so every month is normal.

    I've seen bigger because i have a female nearly three inches, her fry as almost a half inch long and she is about the only one that can eat them. (This monster makes my bettas look tiny, even the large koi female that is two inches.)
    However your female seems to have a slightly bent spine (probably from births, possibly from genetics) so that makes her tum look bigger as well.

    I think she got the bent spine from the fountain I had her in temporarily I don’t know. Never seen her with it

    I think I had one that would get fatter (or at least as fat) when she was pregnant! Sadly I have no pictures, as she died a few months ago. But I think her name, Big Girl, speaks for itself!
