| || | Platy breeding questions.
I have a few questions about breeding platys. Hopefully you guys might have some answers for me.
Currently I have 7 platys, 3 male and 4 female. I know, it's not really the correct mix. I trusted the pet store to correctly sex them, they however had no clue. I have since learned how to sex them correctly.
With that mix, I know they are spawning, I have actually watched it. I'm curious to know if the Red Wag male will spawn with the Sunburst or any other platy. As of now he seems especially attracted to the the female Red Wag.
While we're on the topic of pregnancy. I know its possible for the female to abort. When they do, do they discharge anything or is everything done internal? I beleive she was pregnant when I got her. Her belly was pretty big and it went down. Now she is poofing back up, hopefully conditions are ok for her to deliver.
