If the female stopped delivering days ago, she can go back to the main tank. She should be ready to deliver about every 4 weeks at typical tank temperatures. If your tanks run to the cool side it could take a week longer.

Also, she can produce more and more. Female livebearers can hold sperm for months and months, therefore being pregnant for months. And, if you have at least 1 male guppy, she will most likely be pregnant 24/7.
