guppies

My mom gave me two guppies from her fish tank today, I have never had guppies before. She had told me one was male and one was female she also said that the female appeared to be pregnant. This picture I took of them isn't very clear but can anyone tell me if it is pregnant? How do you tell males and females apart?

They are both female but chances are they could still be pregnant if your mum had males with them

Not sure, don't think the one at the bottom is but the one at the top might be. Look for a dark spot (gravid spot) in the lower middle of their bodies. Maybe images from the back would be better.

Well when I had gotten them and after I did some research I had the thought that they are both female. I think

You only have to have the male with the females for 2weeks and you will get 3 spawns from the female.

Are you going to be saving every fry? Or let nature do its thing?
