Pregnant platy

Any idea for when to expect babies? She's massive!

Platy gestation period is about 3-4 weeks. I wasn't expecting my platy to have babies when she did and a bunch of em didn't make it. Only was able to save 3. You might want to have her in her own tank until she spits the fry out.

I know it's hard but can you get a side picture of her. She still looks a bit round in those pictures....

I will try. She does look marginally smaller today though. Yesterday she did look absolutely square. Today she's more rounded off again. Assume she may have dropped a few fry and is holding the rest for the moment?

Nope, ignore me, I think I spent so much time staring at her yesterday that her size no longer shocked me today. She's quite square... maybe she does have more squaring to do.

Here's another pic. Is she square? Seems it to me...

Thanks Ian!
