lately ive noticed that my female swordtail tends to swim towards the bottem of the tank and isnt as active as she usually is during the day. At night she is a little more active but still just sits in a spot and doesnt move a lot. Is this normal is she is pregnate could she be swimming less active becasue she isnt used to the new wieght amount yet?
is she vrey fat? Usually when they are ready to give birth, thye tend to sit twords the bottem and not move as much. So maybe she will be having fry soon.:)
thanks thats wat i was thinking but yea she is bigger then regular female so it could be anyday which is y i bought her a net breeder but how long should i wait to put her in it?
