which of my platy's are female?
I am brand spanking new to fish keeping and I was drawn to platys. now that I have a few in my 10 gallon one of them had some fry. I now have 4 fry platies and don't know which one is the girl. I want to upgrade to a 20g but don't want to transfer the female to it. I have 2 mickey mouse platys, one red wag, and one yellow one that the LFS didnt give a specific name (just tropical platy). The mickey platys are white so i can see through them pretty much. one has an orange mass at the base of its stomach while the other one doesnt. my gpaw said that one might be the female cause those could be eggs. yet the mickey platys are pretty much the same size while the red wag is noticeably larger though that could mean its older. I dont know. I got the mickey platys from the same place and the red wag a few weeks earlier. I need some help please.
