Me female guppy seems to be hovering in 1 place extremely pregnant, breathing pretty heavily, how soon should I be expecting fry?

Completely natural! She seemed to be acting different the last hour or two so I assumed she was really close.

It gets easier with time and more guppies. If You get about 8 or so you will be getting fry about every week- I have 8 females that are going to pop any day now. It's just going to be one day I look in the tank and I have like 200 fry swimming around.

Best of luck to you.

Is it real easy to tell that they had babies when you don't see any? My guppy females always look huge.

Haha, yea I'm lucky, but I had to wait like 6 weeks from when I first noticed she was pregnant, and I was starting to think that she would never give birth.... But from what I've read in your threads you've waited a lot longer!

Well I found one! She's been hiding in a fake plant eating algae for a day now. It's almost impossible to take a pic, she's still so small! Very good swimmer for only 2 or 3 days old though, and dark compared to the fry I've had in the past!
