Well it all depends , if this is her first drop she might only have 2 fry but on the other hand she could have 30+ fry. You can't really predict how much fry theyre going to have.

samzter is right i have had drops of almost 100 fry on the other hand i have had fish sooooo fat i could swair they where gonna pop the trick is getting to know your fish and how they look at various stages and when there close you can generally guess roughly how many fry

Honestly IMO I think that she is less than two weeks in or maybe not at all. her gravid spot looks pretty small judging by the pictures. But a fish with that coloring will have more of a reddish spot than a black gravid spot, so I could be wrong.

In the photos I can't see a gravid spot, sorry! It might just be the angle I'm looking at it from
