baby platys?
my platys is or was pregnant and she was huge yesterday but shes not anymore so i figured she had her babies then ate them how can you be sure that shes not pregnant anymore?

If she isn't big anymore then shes not pregnant anymore.

Do a really good search all around your tank, you'll find some fry.

The fry are probably hiding- they're really tiny right now!

Does she still have a gravid spot? There is a dark spot on their belly when they are pregnant.

ya she still has the dark spot

She probably just ate a lot. I've seen guppies get *huge* stomachs after a big meal.

that could be true but she's not even big anymore her abdomen just goes down it doesnt go out[/code]

oonagi 09-01-2008 09:21 PM

maybe she was huge yesterday because of what she ate becuse i fed her right now and she got bigger

so she mite still be pregnant

plus the black spot near her anal fin s still there[/i]
