Surprise, Surpise, Found my first fish fry
 
Woke up this morning and when I looked into my 20g tank, I found a couple of fish fry swimming around in one of my plants. This helped confirmed that one of Platys was carrying, considering how lighter she looked. Anyway, I only spotted two, and I'm not sure if there are any more or those are the ones that didn't get gulped by the others in the tank. Anyway, if any do survive into adulthood, there will be two outcomes: If they are male, they can stay in the tank; if they are female, give them to some friends who have a tank because I don't want any more younglings. As for the female platy, I've moved her to my 10g to hopefully avoid an encore.

Your female likely will have at least one more batch. Cool nontheless.

If she does, that batch runs a risk of either getting eaten by mama or sucked up into my power filter since this was one of those out of the blue moments.
