Yay!! Babies!!

She had a few this morning before I left for work, but they weren't moving. She's since had between 4-6 (they won't stay still to let us count them!) that are moving, a few more that are dead or sleeping very heavily! lol.

She still has a gravid spot of a smaller size, but she hasn't had any since about noon my mom said, so we were unsure if she was done yet or not.

*wiggles happily* Baby platys!! yipee!!

She is done if she hasn't had any in 6 hours. Mature female livebearers will always have a gravid spot, it just gets larger and more defined when they are impregnated

Good luck!
