Red Wag Platy prego??
 
Hi all, so i am new here and i have been reading some of the posts about platy's and mollies..
I have a female Red Wag Platy in a 30 gallon tank with some mollies and a black kuhli loach, along with some snails and she seems to be getting bigger and bigger in her belly, now she came from a pet store about 1 month ago and i was just wondering how long they are pregnant before they have there fry and with having the loach in my tank what i need to do to protect her and her fry (if she has some) as she is very pretty and my children love her to death so i think her babies would be a welcome addition to our tank

1 month sounds like she is due! you might want to get a breeder net so when she has her babies you can catch them and put them in.-otherwise the fish will consume them

i have her in another tank ( i put her in last night) and she is now sitting on the bottom of the tank and not moving it to much so i am watching her close to see if she has them as i dont want her eating them

is she squared off? ask someone(not me because i dont really know) what squaring off is. if she is, she will give birth in the next 24 hours. if she does not, SHE IS NOT SQUARED. i have made that mistake a few thousand times.
