2 pregnant platies, one fry?
My dads new hobby is platies, and i gotta say he's not doing to well. I found a fry in his tank being chased by another fish, so i scooped him out(is that bad?) and put him in a seperate small tank. He has no idea what he's doing so he passed them off on me, who has a very little clue what i am doing.
There's only one fry but the two platies still look pregnant. One looks like she stil has a few, the other looks like she might have around 20-30 (quessing!).
Is it possible that they started then stopped and only Herbie (the fry) survived?
We put them in a breeder box, but i don't want to stress them and leave them in there if the drop isn't for a while. (we can see "eyes" so i imagine it's near that time...)
Thank you for any help!
