    I don't have a huge amount of experience (I'm waiting for my first fry right now!!) but I'd say the fish in pictures 1, 2 and 5 are pregnant...they look just like Tiger does right now. A for how close to their fry I really couldn't say.... but I'm sure that one of the more experienced members will be along shortly :)
