How did you manage to get a decent picture.
Mine had her fry two weeks ago and I still can't get a good one.

Congratulations!  How many fry are there? How are they doing? I see that you have just left them in tank with the mother, I thought people quite often took them out and put them some place safer like a breeding net.

People often do remove them, but in most cases they're best left in the main tank, where there's more room for them to grow and a cycled filter. Some babies do get eaten, but they have so many fry, you'll still run out of room.

Hi, Thanx for the congrats! I think there are about 20 babies in there.  I moved  the babies to my fry tank. I have a few guppy fry in there with my platies. Platy babies turned 2 weeks old yesterday!  :)  I am going to post a new pic later today. I am just loving watching them!

Thank you!! I have that problem in my big tank too. In my fry tank they all come out at feeding time so I am usually able to get a few pics.

I have just recently had 2 platy fry. They are orange in colour with the black markings on their tales. They have just started coming out of hiding and swimming with the other fish. I have kept mines in the main tank.
