When you say 'pregnant' what exactly do you mean? These fish are egg layers. Do you have a pair?

As mentioned they are egg layers, which makes me wonder if it is possibly "bloat" from overfeeding..

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Jewels cichlids do not get pregnant. They lay eggs. If you have both male and female they may pair up and lay eggs together. If your female is "fat" it could be from bloating, constipation, being egg bound, and any number of other things.

HAVE A NICE DAY

Just a friendly reminder to never release anything that has been in your tank or pond back into the wild. The ramifications could be staggering.
