Is it possible?

Postby keatingschick » Fri Mar 23, 2012 7:45 pm

I posted the thread a couple of days ago regarding guppy fry, now by my reckoning they are about 9 days old. Thing is, I never thought she was particularly fat when she "gave birth", it was just the fact that the other males were bothering her, and then I opened the top of the tank and noticed babies and I just assumed they had been born that day. Now today when I look at her and she looks fat.
I am now wondering if it's possible that these babies are actually older and that it's just that day that they started venturing into the open? They are all swimming in the tank now with the big fish and not really hiding much, and they are roughly about a centimetre from nose to tail. And wondering if maybe she is pregnant now, cos she does look noticeably fatter than she was before.

Guppy fry 1cm are a lot older than 9 days. More likely from a previous batch. Guppies can drop dry every 4 - 6 weeks.
