Yet another pregnant red platy!!

This will be my 3rd batch of babies in the last 4 months! So off to the nursery tank she goes, with the babies from the last red platy (about 3 weeks old) they're big enough to not be eaten by the pregnant mom.

Just tonight i saw another pregnant female in my other tank...sheeesh!

I know there are some members that are fanatic about keeping as many babies as they can. Or there are those that "let nature take its course" I don't have anyone to give babies to and my pet store will not accept babies and i only have so much room in my other tanks.

I'm in the process of setting up my 46 front bow tank but I want to put other kinds of fish in there not just red platy babies that i keep having.

Not sure yet what i'm going to do.

Thats kind of the problem with livebearers isn't it? I personally leave the babies to fend for themselves in the tank. (meaning I let the mom give birth in the main tank, and then I catch any babies I can find).
I know this sounds really cruel, but you could always use them as a food source... (that is if you are really desperate to get rid of them) Otherwise, perhaps craigslist?
