How sweet. Aren't they adorable? I had 6 platys in a QT tank and after just one day, there were three fry in there. I just loved watching those little guys.

Sadly, by the time I set up a tank for them, they were gone (eaten).

Hm, Mine have been in there for over 3 weeks and nothing. I think a few of them are looking chubby but I might be having a case of Hopeful thinking. I have quite a few plants, I was hoping a few would survive. Guess they have to be born first.

Congrats on your babies. I would love to see some pictures.

Thanks for sharing the good news. I love platies and the black ones are a particular favorite. I hope you will post some pictures, if you can get them to slow down for the camera.

Do your babies just hang out in the plants? Do you have any other species of fish in the tank with them?
