No way...not again! Seriously???
Why after having my tanks for years and having the same red platy's for just as long are all of a sudden taking turns getting pregnant???

Yep you guessed it, i found another red platy that was pregnant, so i put her in my 5 gal tank that is currently full of red platy fry all in different stages. Dontcha know it, she had babies last night/early this morning :shock:

So this makes # 4.........WOW!

LOL. That sounds like a typical Platy to me. Breed breed breed.... And when you're done breeding, breed some more.

I have no one or any pet store to give these babies to, so not sure what i'm going to do. I don't want to become "obsessed" with saving ALL the babies, like some can become.

I have a life outside of my fish :-D The next pregnant mommy i see will have to give birth in the tank she's in. I have no more room for anymore babies.

I have 6 of them in my 75 gallon community tank and to this day I've never seen a fry. They get nom-nommed pretty quickly I imagine.

The one time I put a female in a hospital tank to observe her, she started dropping babies immediately.
