Is my guppy pregnant?

What do you guys think? If so how soon do you think I should expect them?

She will get real "Box" shaped before dropping fry, I have two ladies that are within 48 hours of dropping right now. Yours looks like a week or so away so yes it will be soon, when she gets the "box" look ( look she will go more square than round) epexct babies soon!

What I notice with all my guppies is before they drop the fry, they get the box shape, but also form a white ring around the anal region where the babies would come out, that's when I put her in the breeder box.

Thanks for all the tips guys! One more question, when you say "boxed" do you mean from the side profile or head on? Or both?

Looking from the side, you will see her stomach with very defined "edges" looking like a box. Also, around the anal area were she will drop the fry will have almost a 90 degree angle it seems, that's when you know she is ready. Did that make sense?

Can anyone tell me how to post a pic to a thread? I think my guppy gave birth and I didn't know. Her gravid spot is still dark but she's thin.
