pregnant guppy
One of my female guppies has been pregnant for about a month now. I'm not sure how long it takes them to have the fry, but it seems like she should have had them already. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

it really depends on your water quality and stress levels in the tank, but normal gestation period for livebearers should be between 28-40 days, wtih 28 days being the norm. but again, water quality/stress can have an affect on the fish and will delay the birth, or could cause preterm birth and higher fatality rate.

good luck!
