    Hi I went to petsmart today and got a couple of redwag platys and one of them has a bulge on the bottom of its belly could it possibly be eggs

    I have had my fair share of pregnant platys, and just like you my first one came from the store like that. Now you should know that platy fish (along with guppies and mollies) are live bearing fish that give birth to live fish called fry. There are many things you should look for to see if your fish is pregnant. And to further help you a picture would go a long way! :;hurryb

    Yeah I've noticed with all the breeding there are all kinds of platy colors and fin colors. When I was a kid all we saw were orange with black tails:)

    She may be pregnant, but how many females and males do you have? You probably already know about the ratios (1:3), just making sure! :)
