yes our female expanded considerably. We were given 2 last year. The babies are about 2-3 months old not sure as appeared when we came back off holiday. They are about 8 inch long and 2 are as thick as a standard pencil. The other one is 3 times as thick apart from the head it is very sluggish It isnt floating anymore s at bottom of the tank which measures 1000 x 400 x 500mm Please help I love these things and hate to think it may be suffering.
ok thanks probably will go to vets if no change in a couple of days. but when I think about it the mum went the same and then hid in the filter. a few weeks later whilst we were on holiday our mate texted us to say there was 1 baby when we got home there was 3 !!!!!!!
That was my main thought, and unfortunately I don't know what the sexual maturity rate of those are. But they are incredibly weird to watch mum 'nursing' the young. It looks vicious, I saw it on good ole Attenborough once. I'll see if I can find a vid.
