Thanks for the replies :) no she’s not hiding at all and also she’s still eating ok, which is why I’m confused as she has looked ready to drop for a couple of days but other than being a bit aggressive today there have been no other signs!
Do you put yours in a breeding box or just leave them in the tank?

It stresses the female to move her. I usually wait and move fry afterwards.

I have put mine in a breeder box but i like seperating the females to another tank because the females dont usually eat all of their babies or atleast mine dident.
