Because Guppies are livebearers they can have many fry. If yours still seems tho have a swolen abdomen or is gravid, she will probably have more fry. If she is still gravid, she most likely is just stressed and needs a break. Good Luck!

Check today to see if she has has any more. If not she will probably have some more within the next few months. How are the other fry doing?

It will take some time. You will notice color slowly. The bigger they get the more obvious it will be.

Usually their color starts to appear around 2-3 weeks old.

New moms don't normally have many babies. As she ages and her body becomes more mature, she will have more. Both my females had 20 each. You can tell when she's done when she looks normal, like she was before she was pregnant.
