Its possible she doesnt look quite ready to drop her fry but maybe im wrong the way you tell if there close is they are squared off, belly is a square-ish shape

I didnt see any fry in the main tank. There cold be some that are extremely well hidden. I am putting a blanket over the female that is in the five gallon tank now.

I am not sure if she is ready to give birth or not. She looks about like this one... if she isnt ready to give birth yet, then how did she have those two little fry??

So you mean she might have the rest of the fry? Or does a premature birth mean that something went wrong?
