Guppy Spawn Log

Hey guys! Today I got this female guppy FREE from my friend along with three fry from one of her previous spawns. I think she is pregnant, but I'm not 100 percent sure. I'm not sure when she mated, I don't know who the father is, but I just know that I'm super excited!!! Here is the proud mom with her gravid spot:

Tell me what you guys think! I'll be keeping you posted on how she is doing and when they are born!

And because of this, can be randomly pregnant whenever. LOL

(Which means, just because you have a male and a female, doesn't mean all of the babies will be his babies for a while.)

That makes perfect sense. The other fry were born about five months ago (they aren't really fry anymore, but my friend took horrible care of them and they basically didn't grow for a long time) so the female must be realizing that it's now or never. Now I'm positive she is pregnant and I'm SOOOO excited! I already have plans for where the fry can go. Some to bryanacute, and some to my other friend (NOT the one who took bad care of the fry), and I'll probably keep some! :) I'll be sure to give you guys updates on her!

Problem. The female that I think is pregnant (Dalihla) is in a 2 gallon bowl with three mid sized "fry". It just dawned on me that she needs WAY more room when she gives birth. (if she even is pregnant. I'm still not positive.) I have two 2.5 gallons that came with dividers and they are occupied by my two bettas. I don't have room for five tanks, but I do have a tank that is about five gallons in my basement. All of the fish have to be kept in my room. Would it be possible to put the bettas in the 2.5 with the divider and the guppies in the newly emptied 2.5 and put Dalihla alone in the 5 gallon? I know it isn't good to keep bettas in that condition, but it would only be for a while. And is she really pregnant? If she isn't then I just avoided a huge problem. Thanks!

Please answer! I'm trying not to rush you guys but I really need to know if that would be okay. And I need to know if she is pregnant. I still think she is but I'm not sure and I'm new at this. Please post ASAP. And the 5 gallon that I would put her in is a column. Would that be okay for her fry? Thanks.

the front one may be male. or it may simply too young to sex.
The one behind seems to be female due to the spot. :)

I meant to give the babies away when she gives birth.
Make sure you test your water. 2.5 gallons don't allow much room for error, especially if it's not cycled.

I will! And I have concluded that the one in the back is a female (the one with a spot) and the one in the front is a male. The other little one (I want to stop calling them fry because they aren't, they are just small) is a female. Here is a pic of the male:

I know it isn't the best quality, but he is a male. This was just to show you guys his size. He's in a standard sized betta cup (it kills me to call these things "standard sized). The males in my 15 gallon are the size of normal adults. Is he big enough to be acclimated and put into the 15 gallon tank?
