Guppies!

Hey guys, I'm back!! Ok so here's my story. Yesterday, after a successful fish in cycle , I went to go get guppies that I was interested in breeding. At petco, they have a tank full of assorted types of guppies in all different color mixes and such. Next to it, they had a tank full of assorted female guppies. I believe that I got a female fancy guppy with an orange tail but when I got her it looks like she had a gravid spot although it was symmetrical, so I have no clue.(could anyone explain this to me?)As for the male, I am SURE that he is not a fancy guppy because he is blue with a red/orange top and tail fin. Would these two breed?

If there's a male and female guppy they will breed. Its recommended to have at least 2 females for every male at least, preferably 3. The gravid spot should be on both sides of the females stomach so i guess I'm not really sure what you're trying to ask but maybe this picture will help

Oh also the reason for more females than males is because the males will really stress the females out otherwise

There are no pics lol, but i think the pic i posted above should show you. The gravid spot doesn't have to be dark though. With one of my females hers won't get dark until like 2 days before she gives birth
