Long time until it pops. 3 weeks or more.

When you first notice that she's pregnant, it could take 3 to 4 weeks until she actually gives birth. It looks like she still has a few weeks left before releasing the fry. Keep her eating and keep her stress free.

When she gets really fat, move her to an isolation tank with a breeding net if you want to keep all the fry. Otherwise leave her in the community tank but risk the fry getting eaten by her and other fish. If you have hiding places, they'll have a better chance of not getting eaten by hungry fish.

Feed the guppy fry small crushed flakes and brine shrimp. They have smaller mouths and need a smaller food source. If you want to raise them without worrying about them getting eaten, get a separate tank for them.

If this constitutes an emergency then you are about to have allot of emergencies. guppies breed more often than any other fish I know. You don't need to do a single thing they will take care of it and you will eventually be over run with guppies.

Sorry for all of the questions😂, but should her gravid spot be bigger and darker?

From the two photos, IMO she is not pregnant or she is in her early stage. As she very small compare to those who are pregnant. Also her gravid is not dark.

I don't think she is, her gravid spot is clear, she must have just had them

Nvm, I take that back, but you can tell when she is about have them, cuz her gravid spot gets really dark and you can see the heads of the fry
