I have done some looking around and well come to find out my Platie is Prego. Some one had said in a forum that when a white pimple looking thing form at her butt that means that she is ready to give birth. We have her in a Breeding tank. Does anyone know how long usually it takes for her to start delivering her babies? Your Help Would Be AWESOME! We are beginer Fish Owners and are kinda freaked out. Can you help PLEASE! ! !
just watch her in the breeding tank as it can cause them to become stressed and possibly abort. if there is alot of decorations and plants in your tank then the strong fry will live, however the net can still be used but just monitor her. she will be close to dropping her fry when she becomes squared off near belly. some females hide in plants or on the bottom of the tank before they give birth. congratulations and good luck :D.
if a fish is stressed a tell tale sign is loss of colour. i wouldnt be to worried about the swimming around and stopping but then again i havent had many fish in a breeder. as for the plants im not to sure as usually my fish give birth in the tank and then i transfer the fry into a breeding net. i have heard and read on the forum that floating plants like java moss also provide a safe hiding place for fry.
Ok so my platty is STILL prego... I dont know. one day she looked thin and we thought ok maybe she had her babies.... nothing... the black spots were still visible and the red patch has gottten alot deeper red. so the next day she is FAT again... weird. we left her in the breeding tank just in case... well she is still fat to this day. like i said the black spot never went away and the red patch has gotten alot deeper in color... So my question is she really pregnant??? I am confused! ! ! LOL
I'm new here, but found this site by accident....happy to, tho, cuz I found 8 babies in my tank.....and not sure who is responsible for these.....not sure it's my black mollys or George and Gracy..(orange with black). I'm thinking it's those two.....the babies resemble them.....so far. How do I care for these little ones??????? Help would be greatly appreciated.
