First Pregnant Platy what do I do?
I am very new to having platies and was hoping someone might be able to answer a few questions....
I currently have at least one very pregnant platy... the LFS told me to separate it from the rest of the platies I have done this. My questions are:
How do I know when to move the pregnant females?
Will I see the fry once they are born or will they just hide?
Do I move the mother away from the fry once they are born?
What do I feed the fry?
should I be feeding the mother differently while she's pregnant? ( I currently rotate flakes, freeze dried bloodworms and frozen brine shrimp)
Is there anything important I should know about breeding platies?
Thanks in advance for the help.
I had the same situation years back. I went out and bought a partition for the tank and once the babies were born I put them on that side and put in very small fish flakes. Keep them away from other fish until they are much bigger. Good luck with the platys
