I will have to check that out, thank you. In the meantime, I may just have to try the box and hope for the best. You really think the one is about to deliver? I brought them home on March 13 so if my male got to her within the first few days, it would be right around time. They were "supposedly" in an all female tank, but you know how that goes...
I didn't pay close attention, but I really didn't notice any breeding behavior until the past couple weeks. Would it be normal for the male to "accept" the females so quickly? He's been in the tank since start up so I don't know if there is an acceptance period with them or not. Once I noticed it, I noticed him mating with all 3 of my females, or trying to at least.
Another question, too, if you don't mind.
I have 5 platys, 3 females, 2 males. I got them all at the same time. 2 are silver, 1 male 1 female. 2 are orange and black, 1 male 1 female, and one is a mickey mouse platy, silver red and bluish, female. The male silver only mates with the female silver (shes way bigger than him), the male orange stays with the female orange, the female is a tad bit smaller, and my mickey mouse, well shes a tiny one so she may not be mature enough yet, but we've had them since before Christmas but neither of the males seem to bother her. Is it normal for them to stay with the same color? The silvers were together at the store and the oranges were together but they've been "living" together now for quite some time, you'd think they would've become tank mates by now and impartial to who they mate with...
