    Platy fry not growing?

    Pregnant or Dropsy?

    I have a platy who I think is pregnant because I did have a male in the tank. I also did find one fry in the tank she was in, but there is a very slight chance it was from my last clutch 2 months ago.

    I recently posted a thread about my fish swimming slightly sideways but today it has gotten worse and her balance seems very off. A second ago she flipped out of the water and starting swimming in circles like crazy. Then when she stopped she just floated and let the filter push her. I'm not...

    I read somewhere that yellow fry will be pale yellow, black fry will be black, and gray fry will be blue. Is this true?
