Do mature females have a noticeable belly bulge?

    Eddy has had a roundedness about "his" belly for a while now and I'm wondering if this is a sign that he is actually a she. He's not bloated and in fact it's barely visible and I have to look for it. He's active and he has a great appetite. I've thought for a while that I overfeed him but I don't think I feed him enough to cause this. It's there all the time, whether he's just eaten or not! Colin doesn't have this.

    I've noticed that my females do usually just before they're due to spawn, can't say I've noticed at other times.
    I'm a relative newbie to angels though so hang on for more responses.

    Thanks Coradee! Will angels spawn without a mate present though?

    They can spawn with a mate, but the eggs won't survive
