Back near the anis and where you can see the translucent belly you can see this dark red internal bulge.

So if I'm right what should I do?

I'm thinking first she neededs to be moved out of the big tank and alone. Keep a eye on her and after birth move the mother back to the big tank and nurse the fry.

If i dont have a working 2nd tank what can be used and would I have to keep the temp, air, gravel and so on with the fry? How long do I wait till they can be moved into the large tank?

A small plastic tub with a heater and sponge filter could work.
