Hi,

If you read my previous post my platy gave birth earlier but it is still shaking at the bottom as though it is still giving birth (unable to witness the birth). I was wondering how long a fish takes to give birth to all her fry.

Thanks Jack

The majority of fry are delivered in the first few hours, but I've seen fry come out for the following 24 hours. Give it some time. She should be finished within 24 hours.
