This was my first time with fish a i got some platys and 2 weeks later one gave birth to 11. Then 4 weeks later she gave birth again while i was working and only 4 survived, then 4 weeks ago she gave birth to 32 and so she is just about ready for another birth.
Ive only got about 15 or so left of my fry, a few have died and some i tried to grow in my community tank to see if they would last and grow quicker but now i cant find them, pretty sure those ones became dinner one night.
Ive also read that the older the platy and after a few births she will give birth to more fry. So between about 10-80 (someone said they had 103 once) that range would be normal id say, but ive only had mine for about 4 months so I'm not an expert yet.
