The female guppy has drops of two to 200 fry at a time, typically ranging between 30 and 60.
Guppies prefer water temperatures around 22.2–26.1 °C (72–79 °F) for reproduction.
Pregnant female guppies have enlarged and darkened gravid spots near their anal vents.
Just before birth, the eyes of fry may be seen through the translucent skin in this area of the female’s body.
When birth occurs, individual offspring are dropped in sequence, typically over a period of one to six hours.
