Hi there, I’m new to keeping tropical fish and have noticed my female platy looks like she has a swollen belly. She’s no problem swimming and eating normally. I can’t see any change in her scales either. Could she have been pregnant before I got her? Or is this the start of swim bladder? The top photo is her today and the bottom one was taken 2 weeks ago.

Did you have any indication of her being in with males when you got her? They should let you know, but if she was they can actually store sperm and decide to get pregnant when they feel safe and want to. How suddenly did this happen?

looks like a boy platy but the pic is a bit blurry so could be a girl with her anal fin tucked up.
