Thanks again mmplatyowner24!
When they are "mating" the male turns to his side and put his anal fin in. ( sorry if you didnt mean mating) when she is pregnant she will have a gravid spot (black spot near anal fin) and she will be BIG. Color shouldn't stop them from breeding. There are ratios to breeding though most livebearer ratios is 2male:1female (correct me if I'm wrong I can sometimes get ratios mixed) I feed mine a pinch but the "proper feeding " is how much they will eat in 30 second or something like that. Right now I have platy fry too. They to tend to have fry easier and easy to breed. Platys are fun though. If you have prego platy get a breeders trap or something like it it helps!
