Guppy Breeding

Hi! Today I put a non pregnant guppy with one of my males. How long should I leave them in together? And how soon will she be pregnant? Thank you for the help!

guppies are always pregnant , even as small fry , they can have 6 or more batchs from 1 breeding
a few hours will do it the male will go right after her
if you want to breed a pure line you will need to get a few real young female fry and keep them alone for a few months to make shore they did not breed yet and that none are really males , then put them in with 1 male , with good food and good bloodlines you will get plenty of healthy fry , make shore you have fry food ready all the time I use micro worms

Ok, I know she is NOT pregnant, so I put her with my male. It has been about two days. When will she be pregnant after mating.

It depends. She wont show signs of being pregnant right away. A week with a good Strong male would be better, you dont want her to stress out from being harassed 24/7. If their chasing her, and its been maybe 4-5 days, shes probably fertelized. Increasing the temp and frequency of feeding helps Speed gestation. Look for fry in about 3 weeks, because shes probably already been hit.
