well, it's kind of akward to say. Generally four weeks from first becoming pregnant, to giving birth is normal length. As for your guppy it looked around in mid week 2 I reckon. Hope this helps!

Right before giving birth, a platy will look a lot like this molly as far as shape. the picture was taken the day before her latest fry drop.

In the case of a molly, it was safe to keep her with her fry so I did.
