Can't help with your issue but I hope she makes it. Hopefully someone will come along soon with helpful advice.

Good luck.

what i think has happened is because shes so close to giving birth....she tryed giving birth the fry got stuck and caused the internal bleeding.....just been up to look at my tank and her swim bladder has gone :(...... iv turned my filter off so it dosnt keep pushing her around the male is "guarding" her ...hes staying close to her hes not trying to breed hes just watching her!!!...:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

1 question will my male swordtail be ok on his own if she dies???
