Ive been watching my zebra danio and she has been getting bigger and bigger, and im not sure if shes just fat or ready to lay eggs. Can someone help me.

my black skirt tetras have been getting pregnant like crazy lately. It all started when I raised my water temperature to 79 degrees. They were always pregnant, then they'd suddenly be skinny and the eggs would be gone (eaten by the adults). I lowered my temp back to 77' and no one got pregnant for a while. Suddenly today FOUR of my six are pregnant! Even ones that I thought were female!

So you're not alone.

Pretty fish, from what I can see in the photo.

Well she was pregnant because shes been slimming down. I missed it :-( so im going to assume none of them will survive. I hope she does though with the tank problems im now having. I also keep my tank at about 78-79

A zebra danio does not have fry. They are egg layers that scatter their eggs on the tank bottom.
