I'm not sure exactly what age the guppy fry mature sexually, but my friend gave me 5 female fry aged around 3 months and one of them has had just one baby already!!! I knew they were pregnant, and they give birth after around 1 month. My friend says the fry are possibly 4 months absolute maximum as that's how long he has had his tank, and may just not have noticed them for a while.
What, and how often do you feed your fry? What temp do you keep them at? I want to encourage mine to grow faster and would love to know any tips anyone may have! They are in a pretty big tank (for them) and have plenty room to swim and hide, live plants, liquifry and crushed flake food, and good water parameters.

i keep them in isolation tanks but main tank temp is 77 F but now i have moved the isolation tank in to the females tank which is 82 F
i usually feed them 2-3 times daily i add 2 drops of liquifry and some flake
that's all i do and they grow fast
i am just waiting for all my big baby guppies to show all their colour so i can pic my favourites and sell the others.
do you know the best way to sell baby guppies?

Hmm that's the same way I care for them, must be just different genetics. I have just noticed that some of my own bigger fry are pregnant now! :/ lol
I don't think LFSs will give you much, if anything, for guppy fry. If you are waiting til they get quite big, you might get a bit of money for them. My LFSs don't buy fish, 1 trades for them but the staff are so rude I don't think I will go there again. Most take in fish though.

Do you mean when do they reach adult size? I think it just depends on the fish and the environment.
