About a month. Is there a bulge on her "throat"? That's a surefire sign.

The fry might survive if you put a pile of smaller rocks in there. Don't be so sure.

Just let her hold for about 3 weeks, 18-21 days.
If you want the fry to survive, best thing to do is buy a small 2 foot tank. If not then just let mum spit in the tank. She may hold for up to 4 weeks sometimes even longer. 1 or 2 might even make it out alive.
Congrats and good luck :thumb:

Not really. Just be sure the tank is cycled, she has a filter and a heater. Plus some hiding places.
