how long till Tilly pops?

Any clue on when she might have them? Her spot is getting bigger I was kind of wanting to know how long she will be pregnant for seems like she's been pregnant forever

I would say within the next week or two going on a whim. Once she squares off you'll definitely know it's soon. This is my guppy Opal and she's pretty gravid but I'm giving a guess at two weeks or more.

She still looks plump! If this is her first batch I'd expect 15-25 babies

Well its morning and there are still only nine in the box, confusing thing is that there are a bunch swimming around the tank that weren't there yesterday. Did they get out of the bottom of the box, or is Tilly having babies? I guess only time and watching will tell

I have found a total of 21 fry would have been 22 but my balloon Molly sucked one out of the bottom of the breeder box so now they are all in the nursery tank
