How can I tell if my fish is pregnant?
Have two glofish and three mollies in a 15 gallon of the mollies, a female, and one of the glofish are looking sort of bigger. How can I tell if they are pregnant?

Glofish don't get pregnant. Mollies do though. The molly will gradually get larger and you can see a gravid spot (google it) usually, though if it's dark colored, it's really hard to see IME

thats not true.. glofish can infact get pregnant.. although the eggs they lay will most likly not survive due to them eating them or you do not have a large enough tank for them to hatch.. but they do get pregnant just like the danios they are.

danios do NOT get pregnant... period. Zebra or otherwise. Also, this thread is almost 5 months old...

Fish full of eggs are called Gravid.
But Pregnant means full of developing offspring.

So Glofish and other Danios may become Gravid, which is like pregnant, but they are full of eggs and lay eggs instead of live birth like Guppies.
