Actually, this could also be the case. Didn't think of that one.Kunsthure said:Most likely she is but try fasting her for a day and see if she gets any smaller. You could also feed her shelled green peas, they're a great laxative. I keep on waiting my female platy to give birth again because it's been well over a month and some days she looks huge but if she gets peas or I fast her, she looks normal again. I guess she just pigs out on brine shrimp night and I know she gets to the corys food.
Do you want to keep the fry? If so, do you have a breeder net or floating plants for the fry to hide in?
You have to order off the internet?jetajockey said:golden pearls are a viable alternative also (cheaper than hikarI first bites too I think), commercial breeders use them with great success.
"Golden Pearls" - A New Brine Shrimp Replacement Diet
Golden Pearls is a revolutionary new larval diet that has successfully replaced live Artemia naupliI in marine fish hatcheries in Europe. A patented processing technique (agglomeration of micro-encapsulated particles) resulting in feed particles or "clusters" that resemble raspberries (under the microscope). Golden Pearls have tiny air pockets that keep the feed particles in the water column, not on the bottom of the tank, and mimics live brine shrimp nauplii.
Ingredients: Brine shrimp, squid, shrimp and fish protein, animal protein, purified fish oils, phospholipids, astaxanthin, vitamins and protected minerals, antioxidants, and immunostimulants.
