Almost a year ago, I did get 1 fry from my tetras, but today I noticed that 2 of my tetras are FAT. One bigger then the other. Pregnant? If so what can I do to make sure I get surviving fry?

It is not swimming funny or showing abnormal behavior, so I would assume it is pregnant.

As for fry, you probably want to take the pair of tetra you wan't to a breeding tank and once they drop the eggs you remove the parents, because tetras eat their own eggs. Do a water change with cooler water to get them in the mood lol

Good luck with the spawning! I had some neons spawn (without me knowing) and had 2 visible fry which were promptly eaten by a guppy.

So she has gotten a bit bigger. How long will she hold on to these eggs before dropping? :iamwithst
