Danio Pregnant first breeding experience.
Hey everyone, So i have had this Danio for about a month and a half and in that time her belly has become swelled and i believe she is pregnant. I am not sure of how long the gestation period for a danio is. If someone could let me know that would be great I do have a small breeding net i would like to put her in so i can attempt to keep some of the eggs but i don't want to leave her in there for a week before she gives birth to all these eggs. I hope these questions and concerns make sense and any input would be great tomorrow I will try to post a picture of her.
Danios are egg scatterers and not live bearers. Mine have laid eggs before but never fattened up first. Check your water parameters and be sure your not overfeeding.
I am not overfeeding and my water checks out at 0 all across the board.

So here is a picture of my danio that i believe to be pregnant. I actually don't know how to tell if it is even a male or female but by her stomach size i figured female because when i received her a month ago she was not bulged up like this. Feedings have been minimal since the tank only finished cycling a week ago.
