This is Daydream, my Twin Bar. Its very hard to get a decent pic of her for some reason. Can you tell if she's pregnant from this pic?

Jenn, are her scales raised on her sides? Or is that just her coloring? I'm hoping its her coloring, as this can mean kidney failure. Has she been acting sick? She doesn't look like she's real far along IF she's pregnant.

Sounds good! Only an owner knows the changes a fish is showing from day to day. If she was in with a male though, chances are she's pregnant.
