Guppies should give birth in a couple of weeks. So keep your eye on the spot known as the "gravid" spot. It should darken and your guppies belly should swell, looking as if it had a really big dinner.
If you want to keep your babies you should buy a breeder tank and if not make sure there is enough coverage for the fry to hide, so they dont get eaten.

yes,but how long should it be after the red spot is theire?

3-4 weeks.
When the spot becomes completely black it should only be a another week or so before she pops.
I currently have a guppy right now who is pregos as well...this will be her fourth time.
