Platy Fry with no males?
I was checking on the conditon of my Betta (another thread), when I happened to notice at the top of my tank between my Amazon Sword leaves and Anubias strands, a tiny fry!
I have a single platy female in the tank, I had another male and female, but they died 2 months ago during an Ick outbreak. I've heard of Guppies being able to store sperm for months, but havent heard the same about platies. I don't have a breeder cage or anything of that sort, So i'm inclined to let him fend for himself, and hope for the best. I started looking around my tank, but havent seen any other Fry, but my Platy does have a large belly, but it could be because she just ate. Whats the best way to give food to the fry? do grounded up flake foods work?
