    It looks like your fish has recently had Fry one of mine due to drop fry within the next few days

    Yes, I would say she is pregnant. When she squares off on the bottom she will give birth shortly.

    Actually, I say she should give birth within the next week to 12 days. They can give birth every 28 days but she is much farther than a week along.

    We shall see who is correct. Mother Nature will take her course. :) @FishLover7891, how long have you had the fish?

    :)Sorry for the long wait! I’ve had the fish for about 4 days. I believe that their were males in the “female” tank so she could have very well already be pregnant. I just need to know when to start buying baby supplies!

    I would buy it now so you don’t have to buy it last minute.

    image.jpg A2B91F42-A7F7-4860-9782-2D096427CB28.jpeg This is a picture of my other female. I just wanted to make sure that she was REALLY female. The store where I got them didn’t seem to sex them correctly.
