I'm not sure how big your tank is but your gonna what to get more females so the male doesn't harass her to death. I also would not keep her in the breeder box as it will stress her out and she may die. Breeder boxes are pretty worthless in less it's only for small fry temporarily or a few hrs.

I'm also voting for pregnant.

I agree with what has been posted above. Breeder boxes cause a lot of stress to the fish which can cause death. If you have an extra tank 5 or 10 gallon you could move her into it until she drops her fry. Otherwise in the main tank if you add plenty of floating plants you will probably have some of the fry survive. From the way that she looks I would expect that you should see her squaring off soon.
