She is 31 days preggers and hasn't had the fry!

She looks like she is getting square though!

IMO get the biggest male as he will most likely be sexually mature.

I have a ten gallon. When the female gets prego I will move her to a smaller tank. 5 gal where she will stay until she gives birth. Then after birth I will move her back to the ten gallon.

Do u want a only Guppy tank?
If so I recommend 2 male and 4 female. IMO with that stock u would be able to keep some of the fry.
