trip to the pet store :)
i went to the pet store after track practice just to look around cause i was waiting for my bro to finish karate. i looked at the platies and i picked out 3. one male red wag, female bumblebee and female blue spotted platy.the blue spotted one is very pregnant(VERY pregnant) she has a dark gravid spot and is squared off but not as big as i thot but still big. how much babies do Platys have in one birth?

i would say about 30-40 fry. if your going to just let them drop into the tank with the other fish consider alot of them food unless good hiding spots are provided.
