platy birth sighs
hey if there are spelling problems sorry. my platy is like a blimp and its floating arourd by the heater not staying on the bottum is it about to give birth or what. by the way i can see a big black dot near the vent so i no its pregnant so am i exspecting:oops:
it could nt be shock becase she still will eat:-?.
pictures usually help.
my platy is bloated but still eating...unlike my guppies which stopped eating before giving birth in the breeder tank. can i put my platy among the guppy fry?? coz i dont want the platy to eat the fry when it gives birth.
I tend to not notice any significant behavioral changes in my Platy girls before the drop, the only way I can tell with them is that their bellies become very squared out. Usually they drop within a few hours after I notice this.
As long as their are places for the guppy fry to hide from mama Platy, it should be fine. Though a few might get eaten, depending on their size and age.
yea i took the platy out. my guppy fry by the look of it, i think there were few short. even though i still haven't been able to count them all. thanks for the help. cheers
I use a heavy ground cover of plants as when born the fry seem to drop to the bottom of the tank, and if there is a heavy planting on the bottom the fry will hide in there and grow big enough so they won't be eaten. Personally I use a seperate breeding tank heavily planted, and move mothers to be to that tank, and as soon as they drop their fry, I remove them back to their original home. Works for me. I use a five or ten gallon tank for this. Good luck
