Maturity

When do Platy fry become mature ( sexually ) and how do you determine the sex of one?? Thanks

Chuck

heres a drawing i found off google images.. http://i223.photobucket.com/albums/d...ebearers-1.jpg

ive never had a look at platies, but on guppies its pretty easy to tell once you know what ur looking for. As for when they can start breeding themselves, i think i read 4 months somewhere, but i've never really kept track, i keep my guppies in male/ female tanks, and when i want to breed pick a few that are adult sized.
