Gravid Spot on Live Bearer STILL???

My female Green Swordtail seems to never loose her Gravid Spot. Our male died of unknown causes a month or two ago, and she has has a birth since then, but she never lost her Gravid Spot it looks like she is pregnant again.... How is this possible?

Its a well documented fact that live bearers can give birth multiple times from one mating. Or she could just be constipated and it looks like a gravid spot, my money is on shes prego again though.

I second that my guppy is going on her third batch of fry from one pregnancy they store the male sperm for up to 6 pregnancy's. I would imagine a swordtail would be very similar

How can you tell if they are constipated or if it's pregnancy? Because I recently bought three new fish from Wal-Mart and they were just in a random tank with 1.27 marked on them, so I have NO idea what they are. They look like a guppy/molly/platy mix.

They all have dark spots on them like a gravid spot, but I don't know if that's just their breed?

I can get pictures of them but they aren't too great because my phone has a bad camera. One second.

I'll try to get better pictures if needed, I just don't know how well it will work. They seem to hate my head popping over the top of the dresser where their tank is.

it's hard to tell what they are the pic quality is not great, but the top pic looks like a pregnant platty. I doubt they are a mix of species.
