    I got a platty from the Lfs the other day I just noticed yesterday a lil black spot by
    Her female area, she poops fine,eats a lot and is very plump could she be pregnant.
    I also noticed she stays to herself I have a panda Molly who
    seems to be following her as if protecting her and she's also a female. IMG_20140105_045753.jpg

    Were there males in the same tank as her at the LFS? Assuming there were, she is most likely pregnant, but not close.

    Yes they keep all their females and males together I was checking out all the tanks there.
    Funny thing is she keeps trying to get my Mickey mouse platty to breed her she'll swim in front of him
    And put her area over his face like trying to lure him in.
