Irridecant sharks

How do you tell is a shark is going to have babies? We have a shark and it is getting a belly on it, not over feeding them. Please let me know
Thank you

Re: Irridecant sharks

1 question-how big is the shark itself?

I'm so sorry I haven't been on the forum in so long! Don't worry, I haven't forgotten this lovely website! I moved to a different county back in May 2011 and started high school in a totally different school district. So I'm still adjusting and studying hard, and don't presently have any aquariums. But once I do, I'll be right back on this forum!

Re: Irridecant sharks

Iridescent sharks rarely breed in aquaria.

I imagine he eaten a bit of food or possibly has an internal issue... such as constipation or swim bladder disorder.

What are your water parameters? And is he swimming normally?

Re: Irridecant sharks

The sharks are 3-4 in long, live with 8 other fish in a 65 gal.

Re: Irridecant sharks

definately not breeding. probably one of the things KillzKayZ mentioned. i think they need to be at the least 12 inches before they can breed, maybe bigger(not sure).
