Okay so i'm not sure if i can call my platy fry anymore. I have two pregnant platies in a tank waiting to give birth and about 4 months ago there was a batch of fry, later there are 3 now grown to the size of a neon tetra. All are females and are housed with 2 males.

One female has a much bigger belly than the others, but she's only the size of a tetra and i'm not even sure if it's possible for her to be pregnant?

I attached photos.

I labelled the one i'm worried about as 'pregnant'

it's probably pregnant best way to find out for sure is to put it in a tank on it's own with some plants and keep it well feed should see fry soon.

most female livebeares will be capable producing fry by the age of 3 months
