She is definitely pregnant and probably was when you bought her two weeks ago. I'd say she probably has a week at most. Look for her belly to look like \___/ (squared) and signs of her mood changing (hiding, not eating) that's when it's time to put her in a breeding box/net

I would never leave her in for more than 48 hrs. If you put her in there and it's been 48 hrs only keep her in longer if she is really showing signs that she is about to give birth and remember birth usually happens in the very early morning hours

I'm sure it will! If you miss the birth it's no big deal! Chances are some of the babies will hide and live and she'll be pregnant again very soon!

Probably getting closer to birth if she isn't eating but usually does. Usually mine stop eating, stop pooping, and hide most of the time. That's when it's time!

I found out they lay eggs so no worry's. My platy has become extremely active in the breeding box is this stress or signs of an appending birth?

Could be both. If they're stressed they become very active but they also start becoming active when they are very close to birth. Could you upload another picture?

She looks a lot smaller in this picture. Did she maybe drop fry or just the way the picture looks? I would try to only keep her in there overnight as they usually deliver in those hours. She will get stressed being in there for too long. Also if she's pooping I would take her out. That's the biggest sign for me when they're close to giving birth. They do not poop anymore and the opening turns white
