Blurry pic but it seems she is about to pop. I have never put mine in a breeder box since it may cause more stress on her. I have a heavily planted tank and lots of hiding places so for me it wasn't necessary. Is she breathing heavily?

Yes but she has been for a few days now. It is not a box bad wording, it is a 10 gallon birthing tank. I will try to get a better picture.

Make sure whatever you put her and you turn the lights off and even maybe turn off the filter and or bubbler to make her more comfortable

I agree. If your tank is heavily planted and filled with hiding spots I would move her ASAP before she pops.

About a week ago I noticed, the silver one is a lot bigger then the orange one but the silver one is quick and really hard to get a picture of.

Yeah i noticed. I actually use to have an orange one like that.. give it a week or so and try to get better pics .. one way i have found is best to get texts is by feeding them it makes the mall come up to the top and they don't move around very much while eating

Yes, and I don't know if it means anything but her anal area also has a black opening and the other fish are chasing her and nipping there.
