She is swimming away from the male and when she gets away from him she does slowly swim around mainly by the heater and the planted area of my tank.

yup she preggo...try keeping the male in a seprate tank.he will just stress her out.and turn the heat up to about 80 she will like the heat.but do it slowly.1 degree per hour.

Ok I will do that and 1 more question I have 2 pictus catfish that are about 2 inches long is there any chance that they will eat all of the babies?? I check whenever I get a chance which is alot ( maybe once an hour ) I won't be two upset if they eat some not all and I do have a breeding net cage thing I bought at my LFS for 5 dollars. Should I put the platy in that or will it stress her out??
