Egg tube?

Postby klane079 » Sat Dec 12, 2009 2:17 am

I've been gone for a couple days and left romaine lettuce in the tank for them to eat. When I came home I noticed one of them has like a bump sticking down around where it's anus is. It is eating fine & is active...approx 1 year old & I believe female. Anyways here is a picture...is there something wrong with it?

BTW I bought it about a year ago at Petsmart out of the bumblebee tank...it kinda looks like a hybrid....thoughts?

Thanks for the reply...so it went away?

At first I thought it was about to lay eggs...now I think it is maybe an infection or something? :?
