    I have a pregnant platy and need to know how long it takes for their babies to develop. She was always a bigger fish so is hard to tell with her. Is it about 30 days like the guppies are?

    I think but google is a good way to figure it out.

    That sounds right, for some reason I keep thinking it's 28...don't quote me on that though...

    Would that gestation period also apply to molly's?
