I have two red platies I just recently bought, and I think one of them may be pregnant (or just fat).
How can you tell apart Male and female platies? In my tank, one has an almost all black tail, and one has a tail that has 75% white or clear, the rest being black. The fins are also slighty different too. Also, the one with the white tail seems to bully the black-tailed one.
Also, how long do platies carry babies, and how many can they give birth to at one time?
I do have a picture of the "fat" platy if anyone would like to see.
