Give us some more info on that. Female live bearers don't usually get aggressive when their pregnant. What exactly is she doing, and who is she being aggressive twords?

my mom says its beacuse ive bin feeding them too much

Mums are usually right all the time.
OK how much, what and when do you feed them.
Being aggressive is not a "normal" behaviour do you have an area with live plants she can go to? She just might be trying to claim an area of the tank for her self.


Have a look in [link=My Profile] http://www.fishprofiles.com/forums/member.aspx?id=1935[/link] for my tank info

A pinch??
How big is that pinch?
How often?
When do you feed?

I only ever use a measuring spoon that way you are guaranteed to give the correct amount evey time.
