possibly but it could just be a fat platy. Is it lethargic and trying to hide?

not eating and hiding means she is about to give birth, do yes i guess she is pregnant. I must say your tank is terribly over-crowded by the way and platies should be kept on a male female ratio of 1 male and 3 females

It's not over crowded it's just since i have the newt in there i have to keep the water level low. And also the breeder net on the left has been there since last night and will be there till she gives birth!

Will I be Able to put the fry in a still water tank
(u know a tank without a filter and water flow)
at least until there bigger then everyones elses mouth?
or i can put one of my extra air pumps in there?

Oh and I know When a tank is over crowded im new to plattys not salt fresh or brahish water.

Also i didnt pick out male and female they were a gift so its not my fault.
and thats another reason that I wanted to breed so then i could pick which ones that i wanted to keep and which ones thati sold to a LFS.
