Egg laden tiger barb

Me of my larger barbs has distanced his/her self from my other 6. She is the biggest of them all and now seems she has eggs. None of my other baba look like this. Whenever the other barbs get close she chases them away. Seems to be guarding a piece of driftwood.

Do you think she is going to lay her eggs soon. I'm going to be out of town until Sunday.

The white stuff has been on there for 10+ years when my dad used it for his fish tank.

Barbs scatter their eggs at the end of spawning. They don't protect them or defend egg laying territory. I suspect something different is going on. She may be egg bound or something.

Ok after some research that's what I thought. None of my other barbs seem interested in her though. Maybe another one will fertilize her eggs.
