When do female platys stop popping out babies? Since may, I have a female that have been popping out babies in separate intervals. The first time, I've moved her from a 20g to a 10g tank, thinking that it was over when I've seen six babies in the 20g, but either once or twice a month, I keep spotting new babies in the 10g. While 4 or 5 of the babies will be given away to people with an aquarium, and soon the ones in the 10g when they get enough, I'm hoping Ma will be done popping now, or ASAP, because the last thing I need is for her to restock what I don't need. And right now I'm running a big risk because even though Pa croaked, I have two male platies, but they're a different variation, or breed or whatever, of the female, and I'm not sure if they'll crossbreed and give me some kind of hybrid of colors or they'll leave each other alone. Either way, would somebody tell me how to tell if Ma is done popping because the last thing I need is to find out that I'm unintentionally going through some kind of record.
