Is my silver tip tetra pregnant????
Hi im new here n would like some advice plz.
I have a 90 litre tank with various fish in it 4 of which are silver tip tetras. i recently noticed 1 was gettin a little fat so i kept my eye on it. Now it has got even bigger and i have noticed red little marks on either side of it (they kinda look like stretch marks!) today i noticed that its gone very pale.
Can anyone tell me if they think that my fish could b pregnant or just full of eggs?????
Its hard to know without a picture. sometimes they get bloated. but I really dont know.hope someone here can help.
Tetras cannot be pregnant, sorry to disappoint you. It's probably either bloated or full of eggs, but I don't know tetras, so I'm no help.
Female characins generally pale in colour at spawning. But this could also indicate something else, and the "little red marks" make me wonder if this isn't some type of problem, disease or something. Silvertips are one of the more active and sometimes aggressive (for a tetra) of the family, and can can be a bit nippy, particularly when kept in small numbers (minimum group of 6 is recommended for all characins that are shoaling fish). Not saying it is, but that could be another possibility.
