Question Pregnant Swordtail Fish

Hi everyone!

I'm almost sure that my Swordtail Fish is pregnant. Her belly is inflated and she has a dull black area near her drain.

What should I do with her? I have a plastic separated breeding cage, but I don't know what is the right time to put her in it.

Help please?

Honestly best thing to do is let her drop naturally and not in a cage. I let mine free drop and I wouldn't the fry into a breeding net. That's the least stressful way and I had many alights chasing babies
