- - Platy babies?? (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/fish-breeding/platy-babies-87084/)
A week ago I bought 2 very big/pregnant platies. I put them in my 30 gal with my guppies & endlers. I am new to platies. Yesterday I noticed they didn't look as big and there were lots of babies. Problem is, I can't tell if they are guppy babies or platy. Do platy fry look different than guppy? The mothers in question are; 1 wig wag and 1 yellowish with big black dot on the tail. Are platy fry born with adult color? Do they have all their fry at once or over a few days? thank you for what ever answers, help you can give.
Guppy fry are more elongated that platy fry which are shorter and can be born with colour.Yes they deliver all at once but they will continue to deliver babies every 25-30 days (their typical gestation period) as they have the ability to store sperm 6 months or more.
What babies could they be?
