Sorry, but I think the OP was refering to the gravid spor which is not dark because of fry eyes. I have heard that some people can see tiny eyes in the guppy's tummy, but that depends on the body color of the guppy and how transparent she is.
Congrats on the fry. I hope they all survive. Remember that the first drop is usually small, so later drops should be bigger. Guppy fry are quite cute.

Ok. Knowing that my yellow tails one was closer to birth than the other two, im pretty sure its her. But I still see baby eyes in her, so I moved her back to the 5 gallon tank that the only two fry are in. I really hope its her that had the fry. I might be able to get some pictures of the fry.

Got some pics believe it or not! The tip of the go sign is pointing to them in the pictures. Sorry if they are small to see, I can't zoom in on my phones camera without making them super blurry...

Lol! These fry are surprisingly dark colored. I guess its only surprising cuz I have only ever seen one other batch of fry, which was at school, and all the fry were just plain white.

Ya could be. The female that most likely had them still has baby eyes visible in her belly. So maybe... she hasn't had more yet.

What do you mean she still has baby eyes visible? The gravid spot is not composed of baby eyes. Do you mean other tiny hardly visible dots elsewhere in her belly behind the gravid spot?

My guppy fry have been almost black or stark white and most things in the middle. Its variable.

Well im not sure... let me look again. I can't really tell now, she is being too active. I think she's stressed. It could be from the early birth or she may be in labor...

Still only two fry in there... im confused. Is it possible that she had all her fry, and all but two were eaten or killed?

The adult female just isn't herself right now, she wont eat and is over active... I think she's uncomfortable. Maybe she is just being really slow about labor...

Well, last night about ten minutes ante the timer turned the light off, she started sloshing around water. the tank is in my room, so I heard it. I was worried that she jumped out through the little feeding whole, so I went to check on her, and turned the light back on. Her gravid spot was red. This morning, after the light was on for about 15 minutes, the spot turned black again. I goggled it and learned that when the light is on, the fry turn around and face the light, but when the light is off, the turn and face their mother's head. So I am thinking that the babies turned around a few times, and that stressed her out. I have the light off now and will see if her spot turns red again. She seems less spazzy, but I know she's still stressed.

Me too. It looks like she has calms down, now that the lights are off. Is it possible that she's tresses about being the only person in the tank?
