    They both look pregnant. I recommend taking the fish out of the breeder box as it can stress the mother out and cause her to abort the pregnancy.

    The red one looks like it will be some time before she gives birth. The orange one however looks like she could give birth in the next week or so. as for when the fish goes into labor, there isn't really any obvious signs except for hiding, resting on the gravel and not eating. The best you can do is just keep tabs on her frequently, but she will probably give birth during the night when the lights are off.

    How big is your tank? How long has it been running?
