Is my neon prego?

Can someone tell me if my neon is prego. If so what is the cycle, are they livebearers and how many will she have. Thanks

Try googling neon tetra breeding for more information.


They are egg layers, like all tetras. It could be a female, since they are generally rounder in the belly than males. That does not mean she will spawn.

Livebearers= mollies, platties, guppies...

Breeding seems difficult to do. I have read about breeders that cover their aquariums to keep them dark, and use blackwater. Even then they are not always successful.

I agree. Try fasting the tank for a couple of days and see how it looks.

I've been feeding the tank 3 time daily because I also have a African brown knife and a powder blue Gourmi. I feeding to make sure they are eaten and so far so good.

Ok. Try not to over feed them too often. They could become constipated. IMO its a good idea to fast the entire tank once or twice a week and feed blanched, deshelled, crushed peas once a week to avoid it.
