Preggo platy in the breeder, but for how long.

She's been preggo for about 3-4 weeks now. Yesterday she was hanging out in the corners of the tank, being very still. She's huge! So tonight I put her in the breeder, which she doesn't seem to enjoy.

How long should I keep her in there in case she doesn't drop?

when i used a net, i put them in for 24hours, if they didnt drop i let them out as all fish get stressed in a net, which is why is use a seperate tank.

Ok cool. Yeah, Im working on getting a small tank setup. I have 5g, which is really pushing it, but I think it may work. I hope to have it setup and cycled by her next drop.
