    Hi Im somewhat new to fishkeeping in my 60g tank i believe i have a pregnant platy (correct me if wrong), but my question is when does it look like it will give birth? Note literally just as i put the female platy in with my male platy i saw the male platy mate with it (bang eachother kinda however it goes) it was sorta funny but its been exactly a month since

    Looks like theres about 3-4 weeks. If you want to keep the fry, I would add a bushy plant such as hornwort into the tank (because adult platys will eat the fry).

    Are you sure? I havent seen any signs such as isolation or heavily breathing but i just noticed i can see fry eyes through it...
