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.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

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.
