    Everyone is going to tell you this, but it's technically not "pregnant", but egg baden. I believe yours is egg baden if you lucky, you might get a few fry.

    Yup. You have a female loaded with eggs. Danios commonly breed in community tanks when no one is looking. The the danios and other fish usually eat all of the eggs. There is lots of information on how to successfully breed danios if that's what you are interested in. Good luck.

    It could just be poop. I've read that colors food can give your fish colored poop so if you have pink flakes it could do that I think, its happened to me too so I wouldn't worry as long as it came out.
