    I noticed my female clown has a bit of a bulge in her stomach area. Might she be pregnant or is she just a fatty.
    Are there any other signs to look out for?

    Morning Mike.

    Mine usually has a bulge in her stomach before laying the eggs. But it has also happened that she gets the bulge and the next day it's gone with no eggs in sight (they may have eaten the eggs again on those occasions).

    Other signs you may want to consider:
    - Have your clowns been paired up for a while and are both sexually mature.
    - Do the pair clean a "nest area" diligently, keeping it clean from algae, substrate, etc.
