Is it just the angle of the picture, or does it look like she is filling up with eggs?

BTW, nice picture and great looking krib.

I think she is, she's much more colorfull right now too. I but a little cave & she goes in there often and chases away the other fish from it. I think she's wants to breed but there aren't even any males in the tank.

She will end up just laying her eggs and obviously they will not get fertilized, since there is no male around. More then likely the other tankmates will eat the eggs unless of course she eats them first.

OMG I AM TOTALLY AMAZED! There are 3 kribs in the tank. All with red bellies. They all have to be female because they all have red bellies right?
So anyways one of the female (the one in the pic) was swiming for a couple of weeks with a belly full of eggs. And then 2 days ago I noticed she wasn't as round so I thought she released the eggs and ate them (because I never saw them). So today I look at the tank and there are some kind of bugs with eyes that blend in with the gravel OMG OMG I SEE BABIES!!!! I am totally shocked and I still can't believe it as I write this!!!!!

I saw the big fish swim up to them and eat them so I took out the lesbian parents (lol but seriously how can there be babies with no males in the tank?) I counted there to be about only 40 babies & they have formed themselves into two groups. They all kind of cruise on top of the gravel and some just stay still wiggling their tails. They have yellow bellies (yolk sac?) with red dots on their bellies.

My question is WHAT DO I DO??? I don't know how to raise fish & was definetely not expecting this. I read about breeding bettas though and I recall that when the babies are born you have to feed them with some product called LiquiFry? All the babies are in my 90 gallon right now. HELP!

Males can have redish bellies too. The females will have more of a rounded tail, where the male comes more to a point, like an arrow.

And from the sounds of it, you definitely have a male/female pair. I would just leave the babies alone, since the parents are very protective over their young.

Congrats on the fry!
