She looks very close, do you have a breeder tank or breeder box?

I was actually going to put her in it this morning, but I felt like I should wait for tomorrow though.
how long can she stay in there if she doesnt get the babies soon?

Ya know i have no idea and i have asked the same question and gotten no answer. What i did was put her in there for a couple days and if nothing i put her back in the tank. If she started wiggling funny or keeping to herself i'd put her back in the breeder net.

she's been hanging around at the back of my tank, usually just laying down.
and she's starting to swim close to the gravel.

my breeder box is like that cos' so when the babies come and fall into the chamber, they can hide in the small plants I put in.
and those stones, are ACTUALLY supposed to weigh down the plastic vent thing cuz it floats sometimes (x
but it could work as decor too.

caught her and placed her in there.
so lucky it went fast and non-stressful.
she doesnt look "squared-off", but I see the little babies eyes.
getting darker and darker everyday.
I'm going to leave her in there for a few days.
HOPING!
