clamped fins is not a good sign breeding traps can stress fish very quickly how long has it been in the trap?

Not long but it's bigger than a normal breeding tank it's a 1/2 gallon tank for bettas

If you see the dot near her anus I think it's an eye of one of the babies

She doesn't look very well to me :( But i may be wrong x
I did read how ever that with platys its sometimes easier to let them give birth in their normal tank then catch the babies as moving them makes them very stressed.. and could even abort the babies x

Never mind she gave birth to 7 babies and still is
