I noticed my female swordtail has a belly today & she is actually being semi aggressive with the male swordtail that I have (when he is close by her, she will chase him; I find this unusual). I was wondering if she was pregnant? Pics of the swordtail below. ( these were the best I could get bc she was swimming around.)

She is in the beginning of the 3-4 week pregnancy.

If you only have one female she can get annoyed by the male and turn on him, to the point of trying to kill him, you need pretty much 3 females to a male swordtail because they are every bit as annoying to females, just the females can do more damage quicker when they turn on a male.

She is likely pregnant because she has been with a male. She looks to be around 2 weeks along, however she looks rather small sized.
