CBS Pregnant.?

I think one of my CBS is pregnant, her belly is hanging way down and purple. Is there anything I should do.? Ive have the pair of CBS for about 3 months now.

Hmmm, I thought mine was pregnant, but her belly is light green. She looks as if she is about to burst....

Not sure if anyone has successfully raised CBS. Some folks keep a pair just to provide live food.

The eggs change color some as they mature, that may account for the difference in colors. There isn't much you can do for the babies, but they are a great food source for corals and others critters. Cleaner shrimp release their fry shortly after lights out- it's pretty cool to watch, not sure about CBS though. HTH

Its pretty cool the way the two work together, the female (mom) hangs out in a little cave and the male comes out and grabs some food and brings it back to the cave and they stay there all day... They both come out at night and cruise the tank always side by side...
