  1. Default What do 'pregnant' black phantoms look like?

    I can't find anything on this. I know they're an egg scattering species, but I think one of mine might be 'pregnant' and I just want to confirm.

    The females are larger in general and fatten up when full of eggs. They spawn in the mornings but eat the eggs as soon as they do. If you want to spawn them, a pair need to go in another tank and then removed after spawning.

    I had my heart set on breeding them, but unfortunatly don't have a proper set up at the moment to do so :/ I however bought three females today to even out my female:male ratio, and one of them has a bigger stomach than even my biggest tetras (I don't have the proper set up for a QT either cause my heater decided to take the plunge and, y'know, stop working) and I was worried it was dropsy. I'll see if she gets smaller in the next few days, or maybe she's just obese...
