I just bought 2 platies
and from what I see, both of them have some pretty good signs that they're about to give birth. My question is, am I right? I don't want to stress them and such, so if I can get any information as to when is a good time to put them in the breeding box would be EXTREMELY helpful. What I'm seeing so far is:
- Their stomach is starting to square off (shape of a square'ish that is).
- The white ball/bulb near their anus is visible.
- Those are the two biggest signs I was told that they're about to give birth
Also, I'm debating on whether I should use a breeding box or not. I provided a picture of my fish tank as well and the only fish living in it at the moment are these 2 platies. Is there enough plants and such for the frys, so that I don't have to use a breeding box?
