I find it's usually a couple of days later. I look for other signs for mine like, hiding in the bottom of the tank or around the heater. Also when she stops eating, that's my queue to put her in the breeder. If she's calm in the breeder i would leave her there..Try and keep the lights, air-stone off as much as possible, as this will keep the stress to a minimum. If she feels too stressed, she can hold off the birth or may even abort. They have to feel relaxed to give birth. That's why they usually give birth late night/early morning....
