I have platies and one of the females is a lot fatter than the rest. There are also males in the tank. Is she pregnant or just overweight?

Adult healthy female platies look like this in general if they are pregnant their stomach will darken up near the analfin from the eggs and you will be able to see them after so long.

I'd she's in with male platys, she's pregnant. Hard to tell by the picture.

She's pretty fat. I'd say she's probably pregnant. Who IS that fish that keeps photobombing all her pictures lol!

She does look like she has eggs in that picture but isn't close to giving birth for a while. It can take up to a month for platies to give birth.

Yup she looks pregnant. It also looks like that guppy is stalking her lol. Probably so it can devour the fry.
