I was wondering if my platy was pregnant, or just fat. (I know, the second is probably unlikely)
I got two platies on the weekend, one male, one female. The female looked like she was fat when I got her, so even if she is pregnant, I have no idea how far along she is. So, if anyone could tell me if she is or not? And possibly how far along? I attached some photos.
I asked the same question about my platy. So I'm not the biggest expert on this, but I can tell you your platy is definitely pregnant! Almost all female platies are pregnant the majority of the time. Yours looks very far along and I'd expect babies within a few days or at least very soon! :)
Thanks! So... when you say a few, that means... 2-3 days?
i would say no...because females have fatter bodys anyway and this one just looks like a natural female.....OR if she is pregnant then shes only a few days pregnant..........hopefully someone with better knowledge on this site will corect me if im wrong.
very good pics tho ....:):):)
btw don't put her in a breeder box... it's not good for the fish... unless you see her already start giving birth I don't recommend it. You do not want to keep her in a small space like that for too long, or stress her when she is near giving birth, she might give birth to premature babies.
Thanks for the advice. I've heard that about those boxes. Besides, I have no idea what I'd do with so many fish...
If you want the babies to live just put lots of plants especially floating plants in. Platies aren't as carnivorous as other livebearers as well.
there worse than guppys....my platys were in heaven when my first 14 baby guppys arived....there were 18...see what im getting at
the adult guppys didnt bother them ....good luck if she is pregnant...:):):)
yea id say now that it has been a while maybe no more than 5 days from now maybe. but i might be wrong.
Kay, thanks. Her gravid spot's getting darker...
