keeping female livebearers in breeding boxes only adds unwanted stress to them and causing them to miscarry. I would remove her and add the fry in the breeder whenever you see them

I dont think she is, the belly looks flat and can't see any signs of young forming at the back

Have a look at this short video it gives you a good idea when they are ready to give birth and the shape to expect
