I'm confused

I am so confused how this guppy could possibly be pregnant but I am 99% sure that little pudge is hahaha, she has been the love fish in my turtle tank for almost 3 years. But the main reason I made this thread was to verify that she is in fact pregnant. Sorry she's in 2 different tanks in the pictures

Pregnant and about to pop.... they can store a male guppy's sperm for a very long time. If she has ever been in a tank with a male (even right after she was born) it is very possible that that is the explanation.

Great thanks for the help, I've had this girl for 3 years she must have just been stressed to the max with the turtles, i can't wait to see what the fry look like, probably won't be anything ingesting but I'm still excited

Well females are always sort of bland but for all we know the father could have been a Royal Tiger Endler, or a Japanese Grass Guppy. Either way it will be exciting to find out

Also consider putting her in a tank with slightly brackish water. They do much better in birth in brackish water. (Use either marine salt which is the best, or aquarium salt. Either way just do not use table salt.)

She should be fine. Also, out of curiosity, are your plants real?

Lol yeah they seem to always get bigger but not give birth, and I wanted to know about the plants because they look so pristine and perfect that I thought they were fake. Nice job maintaining those plants!

I cut off all the dead leaves and I fertilize with api leafzone. I also took the LEDs out of the little lamp that came with the tank and i put in really strong LEDs from radioshack, but thats basically all i do

Haha she will give birth soom, dont worry i was exactly like you until i had fry drop yesterday from my molly!

Try feed the fish 2 times a day i think that may have played a part on her dropping her fry :S just an option
By feeding them 2 times a day they thing that there is going to be enough food for the fry to survive when she has dropped them

goodluck!
