pregnant cherrys?

i have had cherry barbs for about 2 weeks now in my community tank, how can i tell if they are pregnant and i dont have different tank to put a breeding pair in so could i get a large breeding trap and place it in the tank putting some plant cuttings and 1 male and 2 females in there?

thanks!

Welcome to Fishforum.com, Jodie.

Look into some large shrimps where their tails seem to hold eggs. If you have a tank full of fish, chances are the larva will only be eaten. If you have a tank full of Java moss, you can place them there and they will eventually release their larva once they hatched.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
