    This is quite normal when your fish getting pregnant. When pregnant the gravid spot slowly darkens as your fish progress through pregnancy. Firstly the redish spot looking yellowish then brown then deep oranges as pregnancy develops. You may happy when you know that the darkening part is newborn baby eye and the orange things are a jelly-like egg.
    So I suggest don't be panic over this, you may search on the internet where you can find various fishkeeping website such as Fisharoma to know the more details about that matter.
