Sunburst Platy reproductive/Fry info Urgent!
Unbeknownst to me, I guess I have male and female Sunburst Platy's and all but one I believe have nice round bellies and have for a while. Today I was doing some tank maintenance (vacuuming the gravel, water replacement etc) when I saw a speck shoot across the tank. Long story short after examination I found 3-4 extremely tiny fry. In desperate need of info. Are they live bearing or eggs? (Need to know if I need to look for eggs), can they eat finely ground flake food or do I need something else? They are so tiny I've only managed to find one and get it into a nursery tank, will turning the lights off make them come out? I have 5 Platy's and a silver bala shark in a 55 gallon tank and the shark is rather mild mannered. Any other info is extremely appreciated so they don't get eaten.
