Is my Red Wag Swordtail in labor
My Red Wag suprised me tonight. I have suspected she was pregnant but could not tell due to her coloration. Tonight however she is displaying a swollen stomach that is block shaped and I can make out the eyes of the fry.
Right now she is laying on her side in the breeding net at the surface of the water. She is breathing and all but I am not sure if this is typical of a fish in labor. I hope that someone is up at this late hour that could let me know, I would hate if she were to die, her and the other two swordtails cycled my tank for me and I just want to be sure to take care of them. I have'nt experience any deaths yet and would like to keep it that way.
