i have a female black plakat that im pretty sure is full of eggs. her belly is full, and she is showing bars. I have her in a small viewing tank in front of the male plakat so he can see her before i put them together. How long will females keep eggs? anybody know?

I dunno for sure but I had three fems together and they'd get so full of eggs that if one darted off, eggs would shoot out, heh.

If you're going to go ahead with breeding you should use a tank that neither is used to. That way there's no territory issues and they're on equal footing. Watch them carefully because they can kill each other when mating and it's not always the female that gets killed.

Good luck though and be sure to take some pics or video or both!
