That's just the point. FAT bellies does not mean full of eggs. Even the thinnest female can release a lot of eggs. So don't look at their bellies to determine/calculate the approximate number of eggs.

I dont know, but I actually saw that theres a lump at the female's stomach. Usually if there's a little lump, it would mean that the female has quite alot of eggs

IMO - nope! My females are very fat and thick. But they don't produce more eggs than the scrawny females I've just bought.

I agree with indjo, that has been my experience too-big fat stomach can just mean she is eating good or just ate with few eggs and a small stomach doesn't always mean no eggs or just a few. I have experienced both.....

I have female that eat eggs and females that will pick eggs up and blow them toward the male and I have had females that would put eggs in the nest...each one is different and different with each spawn and different males too...some times it can be due to the internal instinct of the fish in what they do-just like with males that eat eggs, most of the time they have a good reason for doing that and you want them to eat the eggs or even the fry if something is wrong with them.....weak fry are nothing but trouble especially for the strong healthy fry....fish are driven by instinct and you have to trust in that instinct of the fish especially the male(one bad apple).....they know what they are doing...on the most part......even though we may think that they are evil or mean for doing what they do..

They have a strong drive to pass their genetic to a new generation and they only want the best, strongest, healthiest to survive to insure that the best genes go on for generations.....

I agree with Indjo as well.

In my first breeding attempt, Spiri embraced Hattie, and there were so many eggs. I was very surprised with her! She didn't appear to be full of eggs, either, she was her normal, skinny little self.
