Pregnant platy
« on: October 12, 2021, 12:12:58 pm »
A friend of mine bought a couple of female platy's about 69 days ago, she's had 4 babies from them and now one is thin but one is really fat! Is it possible that she's still pregnant? There are no males in her tank or any idea what the most likely cause is? She says it looks like she's going to explode coz she's huge!

    Female livebearers store sperm. They can have up to eight batches of fry, at monthly intervals, from one insemination.
