Question is my fish pregnant?

can anyone tell me if they think this sword tail is pregnant. she has been this big for about a month so i would assume if she is she should be having the babies by now right? i dont want to put her in one of those breeder things that go inside your tank and catch the babies if she isnt pregnant.

she could be but she could also just be fat. I had a female that was the same color as yours and when she was pregnant all you could see was darker orange babies in her belly, when she was close to giving birth you could start to see the black eyeballs developing.

Has she been near a male in the past couple of months? If so, odds are she's pregnant.
