Platy ready give brith

I'm fairly new to breeding with Freshwater Fish. I noticed my platy looks a bit chunkier then usually a few weeks ago, I'd say about 2-3 weeks ago. I purchased a floating breeding box today and placed her in there. She does not seem to like it one bit. Shes desperately trying to get out.

I was wondering if someone experienced with breeding can tell me if she looks like shes gonna give birth soon and if putting here in the breeding box was the right thing.

I will attach 2 youtube video links:
First one was taken today
YouTube - Pregnant platy

and this one was taken a week or so ago
YouTube - 20 Gallon fresh water tank

Thanks for the help.

Yes she is prego, and soon she will give birth. But putting her into that box may have been a b stressful. So watch here closelyy

The breeding boxes generally do stress fish out, however it is up to you if you use it, I use them then when the female has done giving birth pop them into a net breeder which is bigger for them, There is other ways of attempting to keep the fry, you can let her have the fry in your main tank but just add lots of bushy plants and floating or set up a small breeding tank? Good luck either way!
