guppy

yes she is pregnant not very far along i think the dark spot just behind the bottom fins is where the eggs are developin eventually you may be able too see the babes eyes she will develop a corner to her tummy then it will be close she will give birth evry 28 to 30 days probably from 10 to 30 fry if kept with a male the ratio for m/fm is 1 /2 or 3 this keeps the female from being harrassed so good luck on the guppies

If she's came into contact with a male then yes , the chances are sues pregnant. In the photos she doesnt look pregnant, maybe only a week in.

I believe she is, the first poster gave you a bit of good information involving guppies but its not always just 10-30 fry, it can be anywhere from just a few to over 50 or more. My largest drop was 46 from my guppies. And the thought that if there its a male present she's pregnant its not always true, I've had females kept with male that have never had a drop. My males just never took to them. If you could include a clear photo of a close up side view, that would help give you a clear answer.
