    I have three female guppies, two look pregnant how can I tell which one is giving birth? We found one baby guppy in the tank and wondering also about how long will be between the birth of each guppy ??

    Thanks !!

    You really can’t except for behavior. Is one hiding out or staying close to bottom? They can hold off on delivering but usually she is done in A few hours to 12 hours.

    I can’t really tell. There was one baby in the tank last night but she didn’t have anymore and there’s none there this morning. So I’m guessing the one was eaten. I thought they had more than one though

    Add more plants to give the fry something to hide in. That’s if you want them.

    She may have had more and they got eaten immediately.
