Is my female platy pregnant

grace123

So I was just wondering if my red female platy is pregnant, in the past I have had some platies with a black gravid spot and all gave birth a couple of weeks later, it’s like little dots where her gravid spot should be? Is that like babies inside of her. I’m just wondering and here is a picture of her.

it seems like she is.
but it would be better if someone more experienced with platys sees this.

Also she has been chasing and nipping my other too females that gave birth ages ago, like very dominant as her dorsal is always up. I think that is a sign of her pregnancy as one of my females was aggressive to my male (before he died) and she gave birth to 2 fry. I got this fish when it was just coming out of baby age and just became a adult. I’m not sure if a male could possibly get her pregnant as the male I had before he died, didn’t like her and nipped her to bits while before he started getting ill unexpectedly. She is a bit fat becuase I fed bloodworms today and they get a little chubby when doing that. I’m just curious about those little spots unless they are fry:)

She is pregnant. There are some eyes of the fry shining through already.

A201 please look into this

well thanks for the conformation
I wasn't that sure.
cause I have rarely dealt with breeding platies like bred them 4-5 times only

I suppose it's possible that a pregnant female live bearing fish's belly could stretch to the point of translucency. I can't distinguish fry eyes shining through from the pic.

I’ll try get a picture when she is just about to go to sleep, it’s because she moves so quickly when I tried getting a picture of it
I’ve just tried and I might need to turn on my aquarium light on tomorrow so I can get the light to shine through as when I used my phone light I could see more little dots which could be the eyes but I can’t see properly yet.

Okay so I got a picture of her sides, I had to scoop her up with the net just for like 5 minutes and waited until she just sat there and here is the pictures that I got!:) I hope it is clearer to see than the other pictures I took.
