to me it really just looks like you can see the eggs inside of her. almost as if shes carrying alot :)

Not 100% sure on it. Does it look any better since the last time you saw her?

*edit for spelling*

I have convicts which breed like crazy and I NEVER saw the eggs once. I knew they had bred because she never came out of the boat to eat and he was always outside chasing everything else away. I looked and never could find eggs and never saw anything until I woke up one morning and BAM! there were like 200 fry swimming all over the place. I say just give it some time. The fact that she is still in there leads me to beleive that there are fry on the way!
