Ive gone to my LFS multiple times to get my water checked and I'm all in the green.
She does try to get into spawning position with other females, i feel like she just isnt getting the attention from the males to actually get pregnant and might be "stressed"?
Anyone ever have a similar problem?
I have a red wag platy who has had 2 litters since I have had her and I have 6 surviving females which get all the attention and I think my platy is depressed as she hides behind the filter..maybe we need to get another male in the mix to even it all out?? All her partners have passed away so she might be bummed..my water is ok too so another male for the ladies?? I have noticed that the males either mark their territory that certain females belong to them..
just a thought haven't had a tank in awhile
