Thought as much. Shes not really hiding or sitting around in tank and is mooching around just as much as she always has. When do you think i should drop her into a breeder??

The randy male is now chasing one of my micky mouse platys now. And hes smaller than them all

Lol

Haha , i would just let her birth in the tank, then net out as many as you can . Depending on tank size it can be easy or hard. If you wanted to you could put her into a breeder but only for a day or so. And never more than three days. If you can i would add some plants to the breeder for the fry to hide in.

Found 6 whilst vacuuming, managed to capture her and she popped out another 9 no further gravid spot after about 8 hours so i let her out if the breeder.
