  1. Exclamation Is something wrong with my swordtail? [PREGO PROBLEMS]


    0 Not allowed!
    This is my first time breeding swordtails and after days of reasearch i was positive my swordtail was pregnant, she was fat and had a big gravid spot and was getting kinda box shaped so i put her in her own breeder tank. i left her in there for a good 12 hours and when i check again she was same size and shape but her gravid spot was gone and she was moving very slowly. Since this is my first time i was wondering if something was going on or was it a false pregnancy ive tried looking for answers and i cant find one and shes been this way for 2 days and i need help.

    Is there a reason you took her out of the tank? There's no need unless you have fish in the main tank that will eat the fry...and even then, unless you have a place for a dozen or so new fish, you might want the population control anyway?
    You'll be up to your ears in fry in no time, they multiply pretty fast once they start.

    i put her back in the main tank because from what i can tell on my own the fry were either a miscarriage or they are going to be eaten by the swordtails and maybe an algae eater

    How'd you keep it cycled when there's no stock in it?

    Just trying to get to the root of the problem.

    What size is the breeder tank?

    Anything else in the tank?

    The tank is a 10 gallon and it does have 2 algae eaters and a snail in it to cycle it i also used quick start and let fish flakes disolve in the water to finish the nitrogen cycle

    I'm confused. If you were worried about the swordtails and an "algae eater" eating the babies, then why put the female in another tank with "algae eaters" to birth? What "algae eaters" do you have in the 10G?

    Do you test the water for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate with liquid test kits? What's your water change schedule?
