    Hello, I got this female about 2 weeks ago (I cannot recall whether she was pregnant when I got her or not).

    I know there are many posts about this online but I'm just having trouble identifying whether she has squared off or not. In the first picture I am pretty positive that the eyes of the fry are visible. If anyone could help me with a time period in which she might give birth it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

    Looks like in 1-2 weeks, probably a little later.

    Not necessarily that far in. Look from the top and see how wide she is

    Some females have naturally larger gravid spots than others. I had one female that had a huge gravid spot, even when she wasn't very pregnant. On the contrary, I've had a couple that were heavily pregnant and even gave birth without having barely any gravid spot at all. Yours might just have a naturally large one. She is definitely not close to giving birth, you will be able to tell when she is. I'd say another week, maybe 10 days. She'll probably square off about 3 or so days before birth.
