How can you tell if your Tiger Bala fish is pregnant and how do long does it take them to lay there eggs?

The stripes on my "Tiger Bala" fish have turned blue. Her underside is slowly swelling. She is still very active. How will I know when she lays her eggs and is there anything i can do to protect her and her eggs from the other fish in my 30 gallon tank? There are two other fish just like her in my tank.

    most fish like to have plants in their tanks to spawn into. When you see the female fish rubbing her tummy into the floating plants, she is spawning. The males will then shortly follow suit. You can buy special fry tanks also for the egg ridden momma to stay in, so that when she spawns, the eggs are protected from the other fish. Best of luck!
