peacock finally pregnant!!!!!! i think lol

ok well i have had a male and female peacock for a while now and they never seemed to be interested in each other. i went away for the weekend and came back to what i thought would be all very hungry fish. well i fed them and watched them all eat like usual but the female didnt come. so i took a closer look and it appears that there is a bulg in her mouth so i think she is finally spawning. i will geta pic later. i just thought i would spread the good news.

not sure exactly how old but i bought her about 4 months ago. she is about 2 - 3 inches. she is pretty well rounded. she seems to have bulked up before she took on the eggs. i am going to let her spit in the main tank the first few times to let her get used to breeding then i will try getting her out. i hope everything goes well
