is it head out or tail out? if tail, it'll probably die. its probably hard on her, is she a new mother? give her time. it'll pop soon.

Obviously your gonna have to help or the mother could die too. Do you have a turkery baster? You could try sucking the fry out into it or squeezing water towards it so it may dislodge it. I hope everything ends up ok. :/
:dunno: ......maybe she should do it on her own. "helping" might stress her out.

:( There is a chance that the mother could die as well if the fry doesn't come out. You can try to help her by putting on a glove and gently squeeze her a little. Maybe the fry would pop out or maybe you'll just ended up frightening the mother. It's worth a try. Good luck! :fish:

yes u need to do sumthing, squeezeing her is a bad idea, try the turkey baster or u could just net her and see if u can get it by hand.

I'm still waiting on my little first time female to have her fry... My other female is probably about 2 inch long and had 3 fry at one time when she had hers ....lol

Good Luck
