I've got a tank with 3 glofish in it (along with 3 guppies and 3 white cloud minnows). One of the glofish has gotten noticeably round in the last 48 hours. Really, she's huge. I'm assuming that means that she's got eggs in her belly and will spawn soon.

Does the fact that she's obviously full of eggs mean that there is a male in the tank? Will they just "do their thing" so to speak, or do I need to do something for her? How long does it take from the time their bellies get large for them to spawn?

I'm really concerned that if she doesn't lay eggs soon something will happen to her.

Female glofish will get HUGE before they lay eggs. When they look like they are about to pop and the males start chasing her, she will lay the eggs within 24 hours usually. They like to lay eggs in plants or sometimes just scatter them along the bottom. They will also eat their eggs or any fry they find. It's very unlikely you will have any that survive unless you move the parents to a spawning tank and then remove them. Once the female is mature, she will lay eggs every 4-5 weeks.

I brought one from a pet shop and they told me she's pregnant . I separated her from the ones I have in a net cage so she can lay her eggs but I'm reading all about this male and chasing her they didn't say that to me .
