Looks it. Do you know the gender? Has it got a dark patch underneath. To me it really looks quite big. Need any help if it is pregnant with what to do?

Yes. When should I put her in the net breeder? I have one that separates the fry.

I wouldn't put her in the breeder. I find the fry have more chance of being eaten. I prefer to keep an really really close eye on everything an them when I see a baby I then put them in the breeder. It really stresses the mother out when moves and could kill her. Also they could drop fry over the period of a week so she might release some more when being put in the main tank again anyway!

Sorry I forgot they lay eggs. I'm used to breeding livebearers! Just look extra close for eggs and do the same the mother will still eat eggs.
