Condition Water Problem
 
1 of my platys is pregnant im sure of it the stomachs kind of large.
Its just been 1 male 1 female. i want to move her asap.

About 10 minutes ago i set up a very little tank just fits about 1 fish, i want her to breed the fry so they can be safe away from the others.

Theres no filter so how long do i have to wait for the conditioned water to be just right?

Better to leave the platy where she is and add some real or artificial floating plants for the fry to hide in. The tank you wish to move her to would need to be cycled ; just like the one she is in. You will no doubt have more babies which gives you plenty of time to add the floating plants or real plants mentioned.
Pregnant fish that are moved sometimes abort their young fish due to the stress of being moved.
