Platy...how soon will she drop?

Here is a pic of my sunburst platy. How soon do you think she will drop? I can see the eyes of the platy so I'm assuming that it will be soon. I'm sorry I can't get a closer pic of her but she tends to stay toward the back of the tank because the male won't leave her alone.

very soon i would assume, she may be holding on to them longer to protect them (my molly held on to her fry for longer than neccesary because her mate wouldnt leave her alone)

I would also say soon. At the very most, maybe a week more.

Pretty soon, I'd give it a couple of days.

Yay! She had 37 fry today! I had to miss it all because I was at work. She had two when I was on my way out the door. A few of them died but I think that's to be expected. My other female had 8 fry a couple of days prior so now I have somewhere around 40 fry.

Now, I'm impatiently waiting for my 29g to cycle.

I doubt I could keep all of them. I may keep a few but I will most likely sell a bunch of them.
