my platy is bloated but still eating...unlike my guppies which stopped eating before giving birth in the breeder tank. can i put my platy among the guppy fry?? coz i dont want the platy to eat the fry when it gives birth.

I tend to not notice any significant behavioral changes in my Platy girls before the drop, the only way I can tell with them is that their bellies become very squared out. Usually they drop within a few hours after I notice this.
As long as their are places for the guppy fry to hide from mama Platy, it should be fine. Though a few might get eaten, depending on their size and age.

I use a heavy ground cover of plants as when born the fry seem to drop to the bottom of the tank, and if there is a heavy planting on the bottom the fry will hide in there and grow big enough so they won't be eaten. Personally I use a seperate breeding tank heavily planted, and move mothers to be to that tank, and as soon as they drop their fry, I remove them back to their original home. Works for me. I use a five or ten gallon tank for this. Good luck
