ID:	370 This fish is probably about two years old. She is paired up and trying to lay eggs for the first time. The male is an experienced parent. For almost an hour now she has been making passes to deposit eggs, but no eggs come out. I hope you can see this photo well enough to help. He ovipositor is a bit larger than I have seen before, but not as big as pictures of a prolapse that I have seen. IS she just headed for a sad outcome? Is there anything that can be done?
