1. this depends on the age size and condition of the female.....for examplae a younger fish may have less then a fish thats maybe 1 year old.....
2. not quite sure what this question means...but i think you mean to keep the healthy ones and this also depends on the condition of the parents as to the condition of the fry when they arrive.
3. i have heard it can be as quick as 4 weeks to 1 year.
4. it can be up to 3 with guppys and i think its the same with platys...
