How can I tell if my Marigold Platy is pregnant???
 
I have a 37 gallon tank with all kinds of fish but I have two male swordtails and a female Marigold Platy, I've been told they are known to breed and the female looks like she has gotten fatter, its really hard to tell though, heres a picture

When I had platys the females got huge when they were pregnant, scary huge. She doesn't look to big but she could be. It's easier to tell from the top or head on for pictures.
Just seeing if she gets bigger is really the only way to tell. You can google "pregnant platy" and see what they look like from pretty much any angle.
