ya sorry for lack of background.

I had 2 of them and raised them from newborn fry. one died probably a month ago. They are only about 4.5 months old so i doubt its pregnant. I only feed once a day.

I know mollies, guppies and platies are similar as livebearers... Just wanted to put out there that my Molly fry were getting pregnant at 6-8 wks and giving birth at approx 10-12 wks... (3 mths) ...
Your platy is gorgeous btw.. I love the red wag. I have Gold Twin Bars

why thank you, but the only hiccup that i see is that the other platy passed about a month ago. so what could have gotten it pregnant?

If your platy is 4 mths old it's possible it mated in that 2-3 mth window...
Mine mated before I could 100% confirm a gonopodium ...

One of my platies thins out for 1-2 days after birthing and then expands again.. Shes constantly pregnant...
Live bearers store enough sperm for up to 6 mths of birthing from a single mating
