have you checked the sex? the ratio should be 1 male to 2 females, as the male has a tendency to harass the females, and could potentially kill a female if there isn't another one, as he stresses her out. if your lfs mixed females and males together in a tank, then the female has a good chance of already being pregnant, and if she is she will give birth to a few batches of fry over the next few months as she can carry sperm in her body for a few months. good luck :D
