Sunburst wag platy help!

Ok so I recently purchased three sunburst wag platys at PETSMART. One I think might be pregnant because she got really fat! I also don't know any of the genders of them. Please take a look at these links and tell me what you think. Thanks!

It is hard to tell the sex with those pictures but I would guess 1 m, 2 f based on the 1 pic that is almost clear. :)

I can't count the number of times that I brought home a pregnant platty or other live bearer so I would think bringing home 3 from Petsmart may very well get you a preggo one. Good luck. :)

Soft Coral Reef:
2 ORA false percs (1 black, 1 misbar), 1 yellow watchman, 2 blue green chromis, 1 banggai cardinal, a yellow tang, 1 skunk cleaner shrimp, 1 emerald crab, 10 scarlet hermits, 10 blue hermits, 3 turbo snails, 4 astrea snails, green star polyps, xenia, green zoa colony, assorted mushrooms, purple tonga mushrooms, long polyp leather, finger leather, assorted softies.

Freshwater discus/angelfish:
Discus, angels, 1 clown pleco, plants and driftwood.

I see 1 male, 1 female, and 1 I can't tell.

I can tell 1 is a male, and 1 is a female, then the other one I cannot tell from the picture. It's fins are pointing in like a male, but it could still be a female.



If your fish's fins are like that underneath it, it is a male, if it is rounded it is a female.

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."
