I have some doubts regarding birth cycle of my panda platy but before that i will give you a brief of my tank.
I have a 10g tank. In that I have 2 panda platy, 1 zebra danio, 1 algea eater.
Tank is full step up with heater, filter, thermometer, light, artificial plants and one rock for hiding. Base of tank there are gravels kind of stones.
Right now i have kept one separator and separated danio because he is very aggressive, due to him one of my platy got stressed out even her tail is bit damaged so i separated danio from to platies and algea eater.
I had set this up in 1st week of may. Few days later I felt one of the platy (healthy one) is pregnant but no one believed and everyone felt its just getting fatter later even i started believing it.
But last saturday at night I saw a baby
she was so cute. I thought of separating her but then I didnt have anything at that time so waited till next morning. But I could get something for that baby... she died
I couldn't find her any where. I think platy or algea eater ate her
I was very sad.
But there was one thing which I noticed something. there was some white fluid or semi fluid kind of substance that was floating and which is still there between gravel. I don't know what it is. Can some one help me with it?
Secondly, I got a small 2.5G bowl/tank thinking that if there would be any more babies then I can put them there. But didn't see any. Can anyone tell me will my platy give a birth again? and what should I do right now or later when she gives a birth? I really want them to survive. Its such a wonderful thing to give a birth and on top of that baby platy are so cute and adorable. I want to see them again
Will this 2.5G tank help or should get a breeder or should separate the pregnant platy in 2.5G tank? I am very confused. I am new to everything from aquarium to birth.
Can algea eater or danio eat the babies???? ( they both are aggressive)
I really need help in saving a life and helping my fish to give a birth to new ones.
Thanks a ton (in advance
Sorry for such a lengthy message.
