Not sure about the lazy fin part...Never encountered that before lol. But the females will be fatter when they're full of eggs and will often put up 'breeding bars' when put near males, like this one:

What do you mean by "lazy fin"? The female in the picture is obviously stressed (pale with horizontal stripes) so she probably isn't in condition to breed.
