I have five female platies and two males. Two females are sunburst, one male is tuxedo, one female is tuxedo, one male is high fin, one female is high fin and the last female is a mickey mouse of the blueish coloration. All of the females look pregnant and the males are forever sticking close to them. My guppies in my tank have successfully bred but the platys just don't seem to be able to drop the babies. I have two very small fry but I cannot tell whether they are guppy or platy. But there are only two of them. I don't understand why I am not OVERFLOWING with babies yet. Tank Information:
temp around 80 farenheit
pH is a little hight but not far out of normal
Just did my water change and all is good
I have hornwart, java moss and a couple other plants growing.
I also have CO2 running if that has ANYTHING to do with it (Its the one with the bubbles) Other Fish In Tank:
Two Plecos (Friend shut down her tank gave him to me, they get along and get veggie wafers every night)
Two albino Catfish
One Balloon Molly
Four Cardinal Tetreas
One random tetra dont know what it is....
And my MONTSROUS 6 1/2 inch peppered loach (Yes the tank is heated, yes the peppered loach is more coldwater, but he is doing really well and I am working on getting him a buddy for the tank)
