Breeding Guppies.

HI, im new to this site.
Currently, im breeding some of my guppies. I have a male and two female guppies (just the plain ones that are mixed together) I have put together in a 29 gallon tank with three cory catfish. how long do you suppose i will see the fry? i have had them for a total of 2 days, and havent shown signs yet so how long till i do see some signs?

Well, you will need to seperate the fry from the parents, as they will eat them.

Welcome to AA btw

Guppy parents d not eat fry.

You only need to put more plants in the tank so the fry can stay inside and get foods

My guppies eat their fry. I used to breed some really rare guppies until i switched to my angelfish Once you notice her gravid spot, I would get the breeder box. Gestation period can take up to one month, mine ususally dropped fry about every 4 weeks. You will notice the gravid spot getting darker and darker over time, until it is black, and she will have a "squared off" look to her belly. thats when you know she is ready to drop the fry.
