Weird Platy Behavior!
I think my platy might be showing signs of labor. She isn't too flat on the bottom. But, sometimes, she is sitting on the bottom of the tank not moving. The male is also following her.

Also, she is scraping the hard decorations in the tank. Like she's itching...? She gets close, then dives toward it and scrapes her side against it really fast. What in the world is she doing?!?!

It could be a sign of labor but it also could be a sign of a disease. Really look close at her and make sure she doesn't have any white spots or fuzz in here sides or tail.

Im pretty sure its not an illness. She's still eating too.

Now she's in the back hiding under a rock. What gives? :?:

it could be that shes near labour so getting a bit uncomfortable and restless. i think that as long as it doesnt continue for more than a day or 2 then its nothing to worry about
