    That's what I thought but I wanted to double check. So it should be alright to go ahead and get a breeder net an put her in it?

    If you have another small tank it would be better in my opinion. When I was a kid and had livebearers I used them, but they always seemed to stress mom out. They don't have much room to move about, and nowhere to hide as they like to do when giving birth. But, not everyone has a spare tank to let the moms drop their fry in. I have also just collected up fry after a birth and put those in the breeder net if I can find and catch them - keeps em safe and mom isn't stressed. But, yeah your little lady is looking pretty boxy in the rear to me, so it could be pretty much any time now I would think.

    I don't have one. I may just try to catch them after she gives birth and put them in there
