I would say so. She's nice and fat. I'd say within a week. I did guppies not platys but I think livebearers are all similar. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

cute fish congrats and hope u enjoy them you might want to get breeder box for fry i don't recommend the net one very poor circulation they have a plastic or glass not sure which but they seem to work better in my exp. and the fry should eat live food (just better) but they will accept crushed flakes. best live foods if u want to give them this would be BBS and micro worms both excellent but they are larger than my fry so i would say BBS is best

If you look close to the back of the belly you can see the eggs on this colour(sunburst wag) look for black dots that is the eyes my modo is once you see the eyes it's almost time. Separate her. Make sure you have close leaf plants for them to hide in. I used shrimp pellets and flake food crushed up in between two spoons to feed mine.
