    Hey guys, I may just be getting ahead of myself but can someone who knows please comment on whether you think this Manadarin could be pregnant .... (see pic)

    She has a largish bulge in her center that is "whitish" color on the sides of her tummy .... could it be ?

    She could be producing eggs but of course without a male it is of little use.

    Or she could be well fed. My pair of mandarins spawn a couple of times a week.

    Unfortunately, when I woke up this morning, this beautiful fish was lying dead on the carpet - really upset about it.

    Sorry to hear, I feel your pain. The same happened to me earlier this week.
