I have a Platy I am concerned about, 3 or 4 weeks ago she started to look pregnant so I assumed she was. I have 2 females and they probably have both given birth. I have 3 different age ranges of frye, the first dating back to 2/11/07. Well my concern is that the female in question has looked like she was going to pop for about 2 weeks now. Neither one of the females has look like they were going to give birth before, I never saw the 2nd or 3rd batch after birth, they just showed up when they were several days old - to about a week old.
Here some pictures, I'm afraid now that this may be dropsy.
My concern grew even more when I saw my Yo-yo last night he seemed to have a pot belly and didn't want to come out last night. He seemed to be laying on the curved pot belly instead of his entire underside like I am accustomed to seeing. He is going through a growth spurt and no way a lone loach can be prego. This morning he didn't seem to be as large as he was and he came out and was patrolling. This evening, behavior wise he seems normal, he's been out reeking havoc. He dislodged an Ambulia, has been watching me watching him and swimming up and down the tank front . Here's a couple pics of him from tonight.
Params last night were ammonia 0, nitrite 0, and nitrate 10. Should I be worried about either of them?
