Hi!

Hello,
I'm new on Aquarium Advice, but have been in the aquarium hobby for a while. I always do a huge amount of research (probably more than necessary) before getting anything new, but it's not quite the same as opinions from real people. So I finally came here.
I recently got guppies from my local fish store, and four of them came pregnant. I had expected the fry by now. How soon are the fry usually born after they get that boxy shape?
Thanks for any advice!

I don't know much about guppies, but just wanted to say hi and welcome.

Hey Spacefish -

4 pregnant females? My goodness you're gonna have a ton of fry on your hands! When the pregnant females start looking boxy, you can except the babies usually within a week or less. I'd personally say less.

My Molly just have birth to her second batch of fry last week, I forgot how cute the little ones really are. Have fun raising them! Let us know how it goes
