    Hello everyone!! My pregnant guppy had a batch of fry of only 9 for her first brood. I was wondering if that was normal or did she maybe eat some? She gave birth overnight, so I wasn’t able to know until next morning when I woke up. I have a ton of hiding places for the babies and do know all about the mothers eating their fry. I have done a lot of research as I have many pregnant guppies now which actually came pregnant from the pet store. Anyway I was wondering if anyone could tell me approximately when my guppy will drop again by looking at her? She had her first batch on April 20th, which was 27 days ago today. She’s boxy but is not showing signs of hiding yet. Very active right now. Thank you!!!

    Wow, beautiful guppy for a female! She looks more like a male. I’d say a little longer still. Perhaps a week?

    Oh thank you so much!! What do you think about only 9 fry for a first brood? Isn’t that very small?

    It’s normal for a first birth.
