    Do you know the babies will be eaten if not put directly into a fry net?

    "about to pop" is an expression when someone is about to give birth. A 9 month pregnant woman would be "about to pop". It isn't always polite to say about people unless you know them but ya, you get the idea.

    Within the next week to two weeks I would say. But, each girly is different. Any homes lined up yet?

    I would put the mother's in a fry net, or in a seperate tank. It is MUCH easier to remove the adult fish rather than trying to remove the babies. Babies are extremely small and fast and really hard to see.
