Just a suggestion. How big is your tank? Well then maybe they will switch up partners .

gestation period for guppies is about 28 days so you may be waiting for a little while for babies if they have been 'together'

Livebearer breeding happens almost instantly, so it's not some kind of ritual that you can watch really. If you have adult males and adult females then keep them healthy and happy and you will have fry in a few weeks.

Sorry I just looked up at my tank and they started mating just like that. Weird

Males will attempt to mate constantly but the actual act only takes seconds.

Definitely look up the nitrogen cycle as mentioned, as it is a much bigger concern at this point.

Keep a few tanks of guppys with several males and females, there's times when I pull a few select females from a tank and put a standout from the bachelor pad in with them. Never see or notice much interaction, no worries though a month later there's oodles of fry.
