    Yes, usually the females are pregnant from the shop because the keep males and females together in the same tank. Also females an hold sperm for up to 6 months so even without a male she'll continue to get pregnant.

    Ok cause i saw them mating the other day and want to make sure. She does have a small gravid spot but it may be bigger than exPected because i cant see much due to her color.

    She'll get bigger as she gets later into her pregnancy. Here's one of my females that is about half way to birth.[​IMG]
