She's going to be a momma

Yesterday morning I filmed this video of the more mature female in the midst of a mating ritual of having the boys chase her around the tank.

Last night she was in hiding all night, but this morning I came down to find her near the back of the tank, with the other female seemingly standing guard next to her. ... and she looked a little different.
No saddle, instead, "berries". Her eggs had been fertilized and moved down under her belly.
Sorry for the bad photo, because of where she was in the tank, it was very difficult to get a shot at all, let alone a nice clear one.
[Update: there's a new better photo here:]
