 Hi everyone,
   I am wondering, does she look like she is about to drop fry? I think I am seeing the white spot near her anal fin and I have noticed she seems a bit less sociable than usual. I separated her today and I am covering he tank with a towel.
Thanx so much for looking and any help. This is my first try at breeding... ;-)

Difficult to say from the photos. But a birthing tube and anti-social behaviour do suggest things are imminent.

Thank you! I am so excited, I am watching her have her babies right now!

Was hoping I could ask another newbie question.   I would like to get her out of the fry tank and back into the big community tank asap but not sure how long I should wait. She started dropping about 2 hours ago. How long do you suggest I wait before putting her back into the community tank?
 
Thanx  for any help. Will post some pics soon.
