If shes pregnant she will grow bigger and bigger. since shes black you won't be able to see a gravid spot, thats a bummer.

Livebearers take 4 to 6 weeks. You can move her when you feel like it really but I wouldnt do it too close to birth, as it will cause stress.

Hey Fishy Fanatic, thank you for moving it. I am sorry I didn't even see the breeding forum, sorry to cause you work.

In response you said 4-6 weeks. Could she have been pregnant when I got her 2 months ago and it took this long? She has got increasingly bigger within a week.

Not a problem tdalessa. That's part of why I am here.

I have heard of some fish being able to storm sperm for extended periods of time. I don't know the specifics so I can't help you out, sorry.
