Question "Pregnant" Chinese Algae Eater

Hi Everyone!

I'm new a new member and I need some information on the breeding habits of chinese algae eaters.

I noticed that my CAE's belly got bigger recently. I had 2 CAE's, but the 1 passed away recently and I'm assuming that it was a male.

Her behaviour is normal, she's cleaning and eating so I'm sure she isn't ill.

I've put her in a breeder box with some gravel, rocks and plants.

Is this the right thing to do?

Any helpful information is appreciated.
