Platy Pregnant?
I put in my male and female platy with 2 loaches in september when i joined in september I heard it takes 28 days for them to give birth. i havent seen any babies.
I look at the old photos when i just got it and the stomach seems pretty large now.

Just wanted to save a few or all fry if i can. Any advice? The male seems to harass the female now. iv got 2 loaches aswell.

Should i move her? Dont want to be too early.

If you are determine d to save some fry, move the female to another tank that is at least 10 gallons and is packed with dense cover. The loaches and the male sword are predators the fry don't need to deal with. The female will also prey on the fry so once she has dropped them, get her out of the birth tank.
