Talking Guppy fry! When to move mama?

My fat guppy has finally had her fry (yay)! I counted at least seven, but the mama is still quite fat even though it's been a few hours. She has chased the babies a bit, but they're too fast for her so far. There are lots of places for them to hide. I also made sure she was well fed, since I read that she will be very hungry after giving birth.

Is it safe to move her back into my main tank with four danios, or is she still birthing?

Check if you can see eyes in her gravid area. If you don't see any, most likely she's done..

And if her gravid area isn't squared off anymore, that's another sign she's finished. But I don't believe there are many other ways to know. :)

Personally, I'd move her back in... But that's just me.
