    Hey guys I rescued this little cichlid from the LFS because she had no dorsal fin so I gave her a home. She wasn't like this 2 days ago. Is she prego!?

    Depends what you mean by pregnant. Cichlids are egg-layers. If you see an ovipositor protruding from her underside she very well could be full of eggs and ready to lay. Otherwise (and hopefully not), it could be something more sinister.

    Edit: upon closer inspection it seems as though she's pooping. Maybe just had a big meal?
