    Livebearers
    Hi all! Brand new to the site! I found a lot of good info here, so I thought I'd join and get involved in asking/discussing. My platy had a baby (just one that I'm aware of) a week days ago. It's hanging in there and the other fish are leaving it alone. (I'm not intentionally breeding, so I...

  4. Labor??

    Fish Breeding
    My Platy is super pregnant and for two days so far you can see the babies eyes in her belly. Since 5 pm she has been randomly twitching/shaking left and right occasionally. She looks pretty boxy I think. She is also being nippy at the other two platies in the tank when they get near her. There...

    Livebearers
    I just bought 2 Mickey Mouse Platy since I already have one other. The orange/white-ish one is Big Mama and I am pretty sure she's pregnant and wanted a second opinion since I'm new to fish. Also I bought a breeding net for when she starts to give birth, I am not putting her in it until she is...

    Hello friends, After buying three platies for my 10 gal. aquarium from petsmart (probably not the best place to buy fish), I noticed a small white spot on one of the females.I think it might have been a small abrasion of the scales/skin. I have been treating the tank with an ich/fungal...

  8. Pregnant sunburst platy

    Fish Breeding
    So, both of my female sunburst platies are pregnant, but only one is in the breeding trap right now. I was just wondering how far along she might be... and when I should expect fry? Also, what's the max amount of time you can keep a platy in a breeding trap for? Here's a video of her... sorry...
  9. Pregnant platy?

    Fish Breeding
    I was wondering if my platy was pregnant, or just fat. (I know, the second is probably unlikely) I got two platies on the weekend, one male, one female. The female looked like she was fat when I got her, so even if she is pregnant, I have no idea how far along she is. So, if anyone could tell...
  10. Is My Marigold Platy Pregnant

    Livebearers
    I have attached a picture of Mary Jean Humid, our Marigold Platy. Is it possible she is pregnant? She has a dark spot, but we're just not sure. We have segregated her into a floating breeding tank...but we don't want to keep her in it too long.
