Urgent: Is this a fry?

Ok I know this may sound like a silly question, but is my guppy in labor? It appears to be a fry and not poop, and we did find newborn fry in our tank this morning. Could she still be having babies 5-6 hours later? Also, it has taken over 10 minutes and it still hasn't come out. When I saw these guys being born it happened pretty quickly, is that unusual?

That guppy seems pretty young to give birth, how's it now?

What's the stock on your tank?


Can you take another pic?

I got so wrapped up I forgot to check back. It turned out she did have fry, and she's around 6 months old (ish). We now have around 5 fry from her that we could catch. We let her out of the breeder box and she immediately started having more fry, I think she was just stressed. She had one premature one but besides that they're all happy and healthy in the little net that hangs on the side of the tank.
