    There is not way 2 tell wen xsactly its goin 2 happen 1 thing You can do is the the temperature a bit it will make it happen sooner aans also frequent water changes. if shes really fat it should happen very soon

    I though my swordtail was about to have babies as she looked more like a balloon molly but now she isnt so fat and i'm sure she hasnt had any babies.
