( by the way females will always have a gravid spot but it will only be very dark when she is preggo) By the way the gestation period is about 3 or 4 weeks. When she is about to give birth ( or is doing so) she will breather very very heavily and fast and will likely hide in a cave in the corner of the trank or by the heater. At this point ( or when she is REALLY fat) you will want to put her in a breeders net. You can feed the fry crushed flakes or special fry food! Good luck!
Her gravid spot is dark red/brown. But i'm sure she has gotten fatter...I could just be feeding her more than my teacher was (how much flakes should you feed 2 guppies & 4 mosquito fish? I've been feeding them 1 or 2 pinches. They eat EVERYTHING.)
