They love breeding and can start very young. I can't give an exact age as all platys are different sizes so its tough to guage age but I've had very small platys have fry.

My MM platy was around 3-4 months old when she had her first set of fry. I know this because she was one of the babies that one of the fry my mama platy had given birth to. Sadly, I only end up with 1 fry each batch ( every few months ) because the adults and other fish eat them.

When they are ready, you will see a black gravid spot underneath their belly and they will be very large ( and hide )
You may even see little eyes poking out ( like my MM platy in this pic - )
BTW - the mama in this pic gave birth the NEXT day!
