There are only 2 females in the tank but I bought them in the last week from my lfs.

Any ideas?

They probably are pregnant. You seldom buy virgins. Both guppies and a swordtail I bought were pregnant when I got them.

From the pictures do they look pregnant? I just need to know as was planning on buying more fish, but only have a relatively small tank so don't want to overstock.

If you don't want the fry just leave them alone. They will likely all get eaten.

If you don't want the babies it doesn't matter, the other fish will just eat the fry. May I ask how small your tank is.
