26 days ago i got four new platys, three female!

One of those (Miss Juicy) had a fairly visible Gravid spot when we got her, and people on Fishlore said it is highly likely she is pregnant!

This is her when we got her 26 days ago⬇

26 days on, and still no sign of fry, she is chasing the male away and has been doing it a lot more often than normal but her belly hasn't really grown, this is her NOW⬇

Is she about to have fry, or has she been fooling us this whole time, and isn’t with fry?

Thanks for ur help!! :)

She looks pregnant to me. One of my female platys has dropped fry twice now. She barely changes in size and has only a few. I have yet to see her birth the 20-40 that is typical. So it may be that your platy is just carrying a smaller bunch of babies. She should birth anytime now though.
