Question New and need help!

Hey everyone.
I am new here and think I am going to gain a lot from this website.
I need some help with my fishes it is very important to me so please please please try to help.
I've recently discovered that my swordtail and platy is looking pregnant, I went on websites and read about the stuff. But I want you guys to look at my fish and tell me if you think they are pregnant. I added the pictures in my breeding tank info. So please go look at the two and tell me what you think. Thank you very much.
René

ps. Hope to here from you soon.

Thanx guys. You all seem nice. I can't wait for the babies. I just have no idea when they will give birth. So I don't know when to put them in the breeding net.

Hey. Thanx for all of your help. I just really wish I knew when they will give birth. I am going to put her in a breeding tank, so the babies can get seperated. I am going to put lots of plants so she feel safe. The breeding tank is actually for two fishes, but I am going to take the devider away, so she has more space to move. I know which one will give birth, as her gravel spot showed way before the other one. Is there anything I can do to speed up the process?? I am also going to put her in there so the two pregnant fish are seperated as the one seems to try and chase the other one. I have three female platies and one platy, but only one female swordtail with one mail. But they seem so in love with each other, I think they are fine. And one more question. How many salt can I put into my 15 litre breeding tank to provide a bit of salty water for the livebreaders. Thanx. And If you wanted to see. In my pictures on my profile I added 5 new photos of the pregnant fish. Better quility. I you want to guess when they will be giving birth. Thanx guys.
