Looks it. Do you know the gender? Has it got a dark patch underneath. To me it really looks quite big. Need any help if it is pregnant with what to do?

Yes. When should I put her in the net breeder? I have one that separates the fry.

I wouldn't put her in the breeder. I find the fry have more chance of being eaten. I prefer to keep an really really close eye on everything an them when I see a baby I then put them in the breeder. It really stresses the mother out when moves and could kill her. Also they could drop fry over the period of a week so she might release some more when being put in the main tank again anyway!

Sorry I forgot they lay eggs. I'm used to breeding livebearers! Just look extra close for eggs and do the same the mother will still eat eggs.

I think your getting mixed up. Guppies, Mollies, Platies are all livebearers.....

Thanks! I don't know what's wrong with me I thought they were livebearers then egg bearers (can you call them that?) then back to livebearers without thinking about what the actual breed I fish it is!

Judging by these photos i would say this fish isn't pregnant there doesn't seem to be any gravid spot give it a while it might show up. How many males and females do you have?
here is a pic to help

Did the photo upload its a platy with a visible gravid spot. If you begin to see even a small area with this kind of coloration than she is pregnant.
