Hmmm, my platy's develope their eyes usually a week before she gives birth or a little more... dunno though, if you can see their eyes that should mean they are pretty close... not all fish get huge... guppies might be a bit different than platies though.

I don't want to put her in the small tank until I know she's close because I don't want to stress her out even more. Oh one more question, What's the best way to move the pregnant mom and the fry (if she happens to have them in the community tank)? I don't want to harm any of them!
You all have been a tremendous help!! Thanks!!
I'm not sure I understand the last question correctly... How to move them? I move the pregnant mom and fry with a net and haven't had a problem. You can also siphon out the baby fry with a small tube if you want. Or scoop them up the a cup. The cup thing would probably be the BEST way but I don't see any harm with a net.
