Is she sick or can she be pregnant?

Anyone knows if my mickey has somewhat bacteria or parasite in her belly? Or can they be pregnant without male mickey? She just keeps hiding inside the log..

How long have you had her? Female livebearers often come from the fish store pregnant.

150g long S Amer cichlid; 90g C Amer cichlid; 90g Malawi cichlid; 40g Tanganyika cichlid; 29g "Shellie" cichlid; 29g Pea Puffer. 6,500g koi/native catfish pond; several smaller ponds

6-8 months.. she gave birth of 3 frys.. the other 3 mickeys getting big too.. there is another one that the scale is fading and as far as i understand that usually because they are pregnant.. but this one is most of the time hiding inside the log..

Try feeding peas to her, also what are the parameters of the tank,

water change schedule and tanks size

are you familirar with the nitrification cycle and waht kind/size is your filter?

Is your tank cycled? Do you wash the filter pads in untreated tap water straight out of the faucet? Change filter pads???

New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
