trip to the pet store :)

i went to the pet store after track practice just to look around cause i was waiting for my bro to finish karate. i looked at the platies and i picked out 3. one male red wag, female bumblebee and female blue spotted platy.the blue spotted one is very pregnant(VERY pregnant) she has a dark gravid spot and is squared off but not as big as i thot but still big. how much babies do Platys have in one birth?

MY TANKS:

36 GALLON- PLECO, 2 CORIES, ANGELFISH, 2 SILVER DOLLARS,FLY FOX

20 GALLON- 2 female guppies, 20 fry(born 11-26-10)

i would say about 30-40 fry. if your going to just let them drop into the tank with the other fish consider alot of them food unless good hiding spots are provided.

Might be way too many fishes for 5 gallon tank?

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
