She had her fry about a week ago that i have in a holding tank,she is smaller than the male ,who is bigger and has 4- egg spots that are outlined almost in black,where as the female egg spots are just plain,and the top fin appears to be more pointed,where as the females is more rounded,she had about 30 fry that are still alive and growing.
