frys from one of my platy females

about 3 days ago one of my female platys had 5 frys. i actualy saw it happen and was able to rescue but she only had 5 i see people reports of like 40 50 ? any rate its a good thing was not that amount would be way to many....


useing first bites by hikari they seem to like it a lot. feeding a very very small amount only 5 of them. i started a scheduale of once in the morning then like around 3 ish then before bed on feeding them so 3 times a day. you guys think thats enough?

I think that's fine for now. You could try some frozen daphnia and finely crushed flake in another week or so.

Good luck and congrats :)

Tiny amount three times daily for fry is good.
Try and mix some flake food that contains spirulina ,or algae.
These fish are omnivore's that will eat a little bit of everything but they really do well with the addition of afore mentioned spirulina,algae.
Photo appear's to show another fish ready to drop fry.

Mine had three that I have found. They have taken to hiding in the gravel and the roots of my ferns. I have no idea which of the girls dropped.
