the two in the 2nd pic look to be in early stages, they should swell alot bigger before they drop

While I'm not familiar with endlers it's safe say yes but still some time away before they drop. Make sure they are fed well (nutrition wise) and I would pull that one out of the breeders box. (I'm thinking there's only one in the second pic and wearer seeing a reflection right?)

seems to be only one female guppy pic that you've put up, the first and third pics look like males to me...

Correct me if I'm wrong. I thought gravid spot is usually present only when they're pregnant

Perhaps the angle of the pic doesn't show the gravid spot

Oh no but if they are TRUE endlers, that is, not crossed with guppies they don't eat their young, I started out with 6 endlers about 5 months ago I now easily have 200, they breed like mad!

possible, hence why I didnt just say "those are males not female"



Spooney, it can take anywhere from a day to a month for them to drop every baby, I think, at risk of being rippped again

well, personally I dont like them, tried it for two guppies and it killed them both, i gave up and now i have double layer of fake hobby grass tied together on the bottom, and they disappear in that, if its true about the endlers, i would release them all now, otherwise if your female looks to be going okay, you may be able to wait a little while, 24 hr or so, but I'm just taking a stab, because as I said I don't use them, a good hiding place for your fry is much healthier alternative IMO.
