I think she's pregnant. Not sure how much longer but they are usually pregnant for a month.

Did you get a male as well? You will have to separate the pregnant guppy from the male when she starts having babies. Also, both females might munch on the babies as they come out.

Take her out cause if she's in the box too long she will get stressed and there isn't good water flow in it. Put her in when she's staying at the top of the tank with her tail right down and she isn't eating at all. You will actually beable to see her push the babies out when she's ready. When mine are like that and I put them into the box it happens within an hour or two but can take a day if she doesn't feel safe.

Also, she can hold her babies as long as she wants if she doesn't feel safe or comfortable.
And another little tip, she can hold the sperm for up to 5 or 6 different batches of babies. All from one male!

They won't eat all of them, just if they see them they will chase and try to eat, with some being eaten. Also I've read they can have up to 100 ( very mature mommy) but I've never had more than 50-60 at a time. Still quite a lot! Good luck! Post some pictures when she has them, they are so cute and tiny .

Ps if you look closely at her belly you might see the eyes of the babies!
