Pregnant mickey mouse platy
Well actually my platy isn't pregnant any more, she gave birth to her fry yesterday but i could only rescue two. However i put her in the breeding tank and i have heard stories about fish stressing in the breeding nets however my male swordtail was picking on her fin so i had to separate her. But when i took her out she was quite in a fish way. she is eating again but sometimes hides behind the breeding net but then she is coming out now. Is she stressed and tired from giving birth as she seems to be getting better

I think you're right. Give her a day or 2 to see if she settles down. I think she will.
