Female carrying eggs

I recently split a 5 gallon to house one of my females who did not work with my sorority. So she is in one half and my male VT is in the other. He has been blowing bubbles like crazy and she looks a little 'pregnant'.

Do you think she's carrying eggs just because she is in the same tank as him? They are both young and probably would be around a good breeding age but I have no plans to breed.

i have a certainty that they are wanting to breed. but as you said you have no plans to breed its fine that they are doing what they do. he will keep blowing and she will either reabsorb the eggs and he will stop blowing eventually:)

can you take pics? im sure everyone would love to see your babies:)

also she is not 'Pregnant' she is just full of eggs.pregnant and full of eggs is two different things:D

Really? The clamped fins indicate that? They aren't always like that but I was starting to worry about her getting sick or something. She ate for me today though and is moving around lots.

Shes definately ready, and she wants to.

The eggs aren't fertilized so nothing to worry about.

She'll absorb them, or false lay them.

She's ready to breed. She has a stomach that looks bloated with eggs, and look at her stripes on the body. That indicates a sign that she's ready.

lol there are no stripes...I'd like to breed someday but there is nowhere to home all the babies so meh Even if my local pet stores took in a few it wouldn't be enough and I don't want to get into shipping.
