I just got 5 platys a few days ago and I think one might be pregnant, Im new to the whole fish thing, and If she is, I would like to give the lil boogers a good start in life. the picture isnt the best, i can try for better ones, she is much rounder and she has a black spot on her belly where my other Mickey does not, any advice would be helpful, like if you can tell about how far along she is, or how far until you think she will give birth, thanks!! :D

She looks pregnant to me. I cant say how far along. When shes about ready to give birth she will look kinda square.

thanks! now I at least know thats shes pregnant, and Im not just thinking she is, so should I just "let nature take it course" or what?? ive heard bad things about breeding nets and stuff, and because I dont know how far along she is its kinda hard to plan ahead ya know? I did buy more plants today and made a lil Jungle in a corner so they do have places to hide, I dont know if this will increase there chances or not, I can only hope!

Hi
you are doing the right thing letting her birth in the main tank, lots of hiding places maybe some floating plats too :good: .
you should have a few survive, then in around four weeks she will give birth again :)
