Pregnant platy dying from fry getting stuck in the vent
 
One of my platy's died from a fry getting stuck in the vent. Is that common in platy's and could my other 2 die?:-(

i used to have platys when i was younger, they reproduced just fine and didn't have that problem at all. i am sorry about the death of your poor platy :( i hope that your other two have a better birthing then this poor platy did.

I hope so too because I grow attached to them. :-(

It does happen on occasion yes. I think more common with smaller platy.
