Guppy Pregnancy?
 
I have a few questions regarding my guppies:

1) How do I know my guppy/guppies are pregnant?
2) Will my male stick with one female or will he be a player and go for the other? (I have 1 male & 2 females)

Thanks!

Guppies are decidedly NOT monogamous, lol, he will happily breed anything he can get close to as often as possible.
As your female's pregnancy advances, her gravid spot will darken. See here: http://www.fishinnpost.com/wp-conten...nant-guppy.jpg
She will become larger/heavier through the midsection. When she is nearly ready to drop her fry you may even be able to make out the eyes of the fry through her skin.
